Red-bellied Woodpecker

The woodpecker was showing well today along with several Northern Flickers:

male Red-bellied Woodpecker:

A few people were asking why it's called Red-bellied when it clearly has a red head... Well it does have a red belly as you can see in the next photo and another woodpecker has already taken the title of Red-headed Woodpecker

Red-headed Woodpecker from Pelee last May:

Have a good Christmas!
