Subject: [JERSEYBI] This is why they are called Red-BELLIED Woodpeckers. :-) (photo)
I used to wonder how Red-bellied woodpeckers got their name, until one day
I got this straight-on view. They get their name from a not-too-obvious
field mark which is usually hard to see. Note faint wash of red on the
belly:
