Red-Bellied Woodpecker

Red-Bellied Woodpecker Photo Album

 

Welcome to the TGO Nature Center’s Red-Bellied Woodpecker Photo Album.  We hope these photographs will help you in identifying this woodpecker that you will find at The Great Outdoors. Click on a photo to enlarge it for a closer look.

The male Red-Bellied Woodpecker has a red head that extends from about the beak down the back of its head.  A female looks like she has a receding red hairline as the red on her head only covers her head from about halfway back from the beak.

Luis Duthil took the five photos below of a juvenile Red-Bellied Woodpecker and its daddy.

Pat Ellwanger sent in this photo of a female Red-Bellied Woodpecker on March 7, 2016.  It was peeping through the window of the bedroom.  Does that make her a “Peeping Teresa” vs a “Peeping Tom”?

The two photos below taken in December 2015 show a Red-Bellied Woodpecker in a nesting box in Nikki and Luis Duthill’s yard.  Nikki said the bird has been working on the opening to make it larger. Let’s hope we get a family started in this box. Nikki will keep us posted and I’ll provide updates on this page.

Jim Dick shared these photographs he took of a pair of Red-Bellied Woodpeckers in the top photo and a close-up of the female in the second photo.  Notice how the red does not totally cover the female’s head and on the male the red goes almost to the beak.
