Default I give up... what is it?

Saw this strange fella in the everglades today. Looks like he's a NASCAR fan.

Hi Bob K

You have nicely captured an aviator at rest...

Nice touch

A woodpecker of some kind, I'd say...the red tuft on top confirms it IMO...

Hello Bob,

I thought I posted this reply, but I suppose I must have pushed the wrong button! I was noting that these fellas must have pretty good range. I captured the one below (not nearly as nice as your shot!) while visiting in Cleveland, Ohio.

Bob, yours is a female red-bellied woodpecker. If you look really close, you'll see a little reddish hue on the belly. I think the young one tstoval shot, is a young male. The male has the red on the head come all the way over the crown onto the forehead.

Here is a female from my backyard.
