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!)

Downy Woodpecker

Where have you been all my life?  Finally, a Northern Flicker!

Pileated Woodpecker

Redheaded Woodpecker

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