Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Woodland habitat along the Mississippi River at Rock Creek County Park.
This was the only red bellied that we saw mixed in with a large population of red headed woodpeckers and a couple of downy woodpeckers.
Northern flickers so not have red heads. They have a red patch where the skull and neck meet, and can have red patches under the eyes. They are more grey/brown in overall color and have yellow feathers in the wings that may not be visible until flying. Similar in size though.
I could be wrong, but this may be a Northern Flicker.
