I took this Red Headed woodpecker at Ebnizer Point at Jordan Lake in August 2018.
The red bellied woodpecker is in the woodpecker family. .
How to identify the Red Headed Woodpeckers heres how to do it.
The adults are black and wings are also black too. Clear white below and their head and neck are red. Thats how it got the name Red Headed woodpecker. Their rump is white and their tail is black.
Heres how to identify the immature Red Headed woodpecker. Back and and much of their wings and head is brown. . They feed on acorns in tree cavities or large insects on the ground. Sorry Al D for the eating of the insects on the ground. get it AL D!!! Their voice is loud cheer sound.
The red headed woodpecker can be found in open woods and sand hills and towns. They are a resident woodpecker here in North Carolina.
