While this Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) is much smaller than a Pileated Woodpecker, it's still much bigger than the Downy Woodpeckers that usually visit my suet feeder. Its name is a little misleading since its belly isn't noticeably red while its red cap is very eye-catching. (Other species of woodpeckers also have red heads, so the more obvious feature of this bird might not make the better name.)
