Red-headed woodpeckers range throughout most of the United States east of the rocky mountains and the border region with Canada, although the northwestern portion of this range is summer only.
In addition to the solid red head of adults, the white rump and secondaries of all ages are distinctive. The belly is solid white. Juveniles have a brown head, mottled belly and the upper white areas are smaller and less solid white.
These woodpeckers will store food and also fly out to catch insects in mid-air.
