Red-bellied Woodpecker

Melanerpes carolinus

Description:

A sleek, round-headed woodpecker, about the same size as a Hairy Woodpecker but without the blocky outlines. Often appears pale overall, even the boldly black-and-white striped back, with flashing red cap and nape. Look for white patches near the wingtips as this bird flies.

Habitat:

On a trail through the woods to Woodlawn beach. This water is between Gulf Breeze and Santa Rosa Island. This area had a significant wildfire last summer.
