Illinois Crimson Headed bird?

Recommended Posts

I live in North Central Illinois. I throw bird seed out every morning for the birds. Two birds have appeared recently that have Crimson heads. White breast. Black wings with white near the tip. What is this bird? I've never seen it before.

Welcome to Whatbird!  A lot of our woodpeckers have red on the head, especially in males, but I agree that you've got the official Red-headed Woodpeckers.
