Woodpeckers may be some of the old standbys when it comes to birding, but they are always a welcome sight. They are so striking and have such personality with their contrasting colors and odd calls. I've seen a lot of them in North Carolina. Most of them in my own backyard. In fact the only creatures I've seen more of are spiders! (But that's another story!)

|Yellow Bellied Sapsucker|
|Red Bellied Woodpecker|
I would have named it the Red Capped Woodpecker myself.
