  The Red-bellie's Red Belly

I always thought the Red-bellied Woodpecker was mis-named.  It wasn't until recently, when I read a comment on Jim Adams' blog, that the Red-bellied Woodpecker really does have a red belly!  No kidding??!!!  Apparently, it's not seen all that often, though, and I've been trying hard ever since I read about it to get my own look-see.  I finally saw it - and even captured a fair picture of it!!!  Jim's photos give a better view, but here's a glimpse for any unbelievers out there!

You can just make out the red glow on his underside. It's THERE!
