Odd Woodpecker



Remember that white headed Woodpecker I mentioned last night that I was hoping to get a picture of today?  Well, I got it.

By all indications, this “should” be a Red Bellied Woodpecker, but this one has a white head.  Not sure what that indicates.  Is it just a young Red Bellied Woodpecker or does the white head indicated something else?  Whatever it is, I think I’ll call this one Curly since it’s “bald.”

Based on this next picture, it looks like a little patch of color is coming in on the top of its head.
