My Country Life
I thought they were called "red-headed woodpeckers."
Jane, go to google and type in "red-bellied woodpecker" and go to the images. Not a red belly in the lot!

I am so jealous of all the green grass you have already. We have a couple of months to go here before we see it.Do you get robins at your bird feeder or just see them on the grass? Not really surprised at the other blogger's decision to stop blogging. I wonder that she just didn't close comments but keep on writing.
Robins aren't seed eaters, so they don't patronize the feeder. They do love the bird-bath, however, and it's great fun to watch them bathe. I'm thinking that blogger was messing up some relatives' lives, and possibly causing her husband to lose customers in his practice. She had been getting into local school politics, too; and since everybody in town had access to her blog, this may have affected her kids. It reminds me to try and stay away from controversy.
The red-headed woodpecker has a TOTALLY red head. And if you could see the chest straight on, you might notice a pink tinge to part of it, thus the "red belly." It's only a slight tinge, and not easy to spot. Like this;http://www.1000birds.com/images/Red-bellied-Woodpecker60267.jpgCourtesy of my bird-fanatic brother.Blessings,Toni
