Red Bellied Woodpecker

Many people incorrectly identify the Red bellied for a Red headed Woodpecker.  Of course it doesn’t help that you really can’t see much of a red belly on the Red bellied Woodpecker.  

Either way I enjoy seeing these beauties at my deck feeder. This one is enjoying sunflower seeds.

The Red bellied Woodpecker is a common woodpecker that can be found on the eastern half of the United States as far south as Texas and as far north as Canada. Its habitat is woodlands, suburban backyards, and parks.

This bird is a medium size woodpecker and is from nine to ten and a half inches in length. Their wingspan is from fifteen to eighteen inches.

I see them year round in my backyard.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
