[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last picture of 2012 - if you've ever wondered why these are called red-bellied woodpeckers, when their red crown is so much more obvious, this shot of one at the suet feeder will make it clear!

Taken using a monopod to help stabilize the camera, through a closed window at ISO 1250.

I have never managed to get a clear shot of one of these way from the feeder - perhaps next year??

Happy New Year to all the marvelous photographers at this site!

Red Bellied Woodpecker - Cornell

Red-bellied Woodpeckers are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forests of the East. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, a somewhat rarer species that's mostly black on the back with big white wing patches. Learn the Red-bellied's rolling call and you’ll notice these birds everywhere.
