Red-bellied Woodpecker, Livingston, New Jersey, 230711

When watching the House Sparrow, Common Grackles, and Northern Cardinals at the bird feeder on my cousin's deck, I suddenly found a

RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER

there, too!

Here it is, at the feeder:

I don't know if it's a he or a she, but the bird flew in repeatedly:

In true politician style, it sat on the fence:

And then went to the neighbour's tree to look for insects on the trunk:

I still don't know, when it has such a lovely red nape and red eyes, why call it a Red-*BELLIED* Woodpecker!
