I got this photo of a Red bellied Woodpecker near a feeder today.
They are shy little fellows but they do love to visit the feeders. - Photo by Rodney Campbell
Since virtually all woodpeckers are black and white with patches of bright colors on various parts of their bodies, the Red-bellied was named for the unique pinkish tinge on the belly, common to both genders. Females have a gray patch on their forehead.
