This is a male Red-bellied Woodpecker that I encountered at Morton Refuge in Sag Harbor. One of the ways to discern a male Red-belly from a female is where the red atop their head begins. As you can see in these photos, the red on a male starts at the bill, whereas in a female, the red doesn’t begin till after the eyeball. JK.

This is a male Red-bellied Woodpecker. He’s going to use this as his profile pic at Match.com. His interests include wandering through open woodland, bird feeders, foraging for insects, and dead trees. He includes Cooper’s Hawks and aluminum Christmas trees among his dislikes. Go figure. JK
