The Red-Bellied Woodpecker is a zebra backed woodpecker with a red cap, and a white rump. Red covers the crown and nape in the male. Its habitat is woodlands, groves, orchards, and in towns. It has a range of the eastern half of the United States up from central Texas to upper Wisconsin. Their diet is mostly insects. It was a surprise to see the Woodpecker at the feeder with Black Capped Chickadees and House Finches.
