Woodpeckers with their black, white and red colorings result in striking looking birds. The Acorn WookpeckerMelanerpes formicivorus is a classic example. A straight on view of the head is hypnotic 6080. Although not shown in the female (0775, 0788) the male Nuthall's Woodpecker Picoides nuttalli also has a red head. These photos were taken at Wrightwood, CA.
The Red-belied WoodpeckerMelanerpes carolinus is almost exclusively an eastern woodpecker. This photo was taken in the small nature preserve outside of the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, Key Largo, CA.
