The Red-bellied Woodpecker has to be one of my favorite birds! I have been lucky enough to have one at my feeders in the winter, even though New Hampshire is on the outskirts of this bird’s range. They are common in the Midwest and throughout the east except for northern New England. They are most often seen on tree trunks searching the bark for food. Red-bellied Woodpeckers attract mates by drumming on hollow trees, metal roofs or even gutters—anything that resonates loudly. Attract them by putting out suet. I love seeing these birds!
