An New York woodpecker and a Florida woodpecker were in New York arguing about which state had the toughest trees to peck. The New Yorker
woodpecker said that they had a tree there that no woodpecker can peck.
The Florida woodpecker challenged him and was able to peck a hole in the tree with no problem. The New Yorker woodpecker was in awe!
The Florida woodpeck then challenged the New Yorker woodpecker to come to Florida and try to peck this certain tree there that no woodpecker had
ever been able to peck successfully.
The NewYorker woodpecker said he was sure he would be able to do it. So, after flying down to Florida, he successfully pecked the tree!
The two woodpeckers then had a discussion about why they were each unable to peck those trees in their own states. After thinking about this problem
for some time, they both came to the same conclusion: “Your pecker is always harder when you’re away from home…”
Interesting Fact: You may sometimes see Red-bellied Woodpeckers wedge large nuts into bark crevices, then whack them into manageable pieces using their beaks. They also use cracks in trees and fence posts to store food for later in the year, a habit it shares with other woodpeckers in its genus.

Would love to know who named this bird. My grandson thought I was crazy when I told him what it was.
Hehehe not sure who named him but Oddly enough, the Red-bellied Woodpecker is named for its least distinctive feature, a light wash of red or pink on its belly that can only be seen if the bird is hanging upside-down. Much more noticeable is the bright red patch extending from the top of its head, in the male, and down the back of the neck, in both sexes. Hope that helps. Happy Blogging! 😊
