My blog follows my travels through the US & Canada in an Escape 21 Travel Trailer towed by an Tacoma Off Road truck.
For anyone interested in additional photos I have a Web Page with photos & journals of all my trips.

What Kind of Woodpecker is This?
I have a request from any "bird people". What is this? It is a little smaller than a Hairy Woodpecker, and I've never seen one with red under the bill. None of my bird books or my iBirds app show any woodpecker with red under the bill so I'm confused. The face striping is similar to a Pileated Woodpecker, but it is much smaller, and the tuff on the top of the head is not there. Could it be a young Pileated?
It loves to sound on this metal mailbox bottom - you can hear it from 1/4 mile away.
Here is another view:
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
I did get an answer (in fact, a bunch of them). It is a yellow bellied sapsucker. Thanks to all...
