[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red-bellied Woodpeckers are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forests of the East. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call it a Red-headed Woodpecker,
This bird is adult male
# Red forehead, cap, and nape
# Gray or brownish face and underparts
# Breast may be washed with reddish (like belly)
Thanks for the correction kedar kulkarni

Hi Manoj, Very well capture, clear image, natural colors and good focus.

hello Manoj!

keep photographing! TFS

Hi Manoj,

This is a very nice and sharp capture. very good focus. Good composition.
But I think this is not Ladder back Wood Pecker, it may be a Red Bellied Woodpecker. I may be wrong as I am not very conversant with the birds in North America.



Hi Manoj,

Very good capture with beautiful color, perfect composition and excellent POV. I see some noise in light background. It would be good to publish your EXIF for future posts, so we can help determine the origin of these small defects.

Good work, thanks for sharing!
