Red-headed Woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus)

Croton Point Park on Groundhog Day, Feb 2, 2014

There is a Downy Woodpecker in the same tree

First seen as a rarity at Croton Point Park on Feb 2, 2014.

We've also seen them in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado, and in Nebraska where they are much more common. Here's one in Colorado seen during our eclipse trip

I saw a family of red-headed woodpeckers during my Indiana Salmon and the Midwest Crusade trip in July, 2023. The juveniles did not yet have red heads.
