Red-Headed or Red-bellied Woodpecker (Not the Flicker, the call is faint and more towards the end)


Recommended Posts

@Tanager 101 my phone (Apple) won’t let me download or view .mts files, so I’m guessing  it may not work for many others either. Could you convert it to .mp3?

I remember RHWO calls as scared/surprised sounding RBWO churrs

I can try maybe tomorrow. I know what both Woodpeckers sound like an it was a faint kind of far off but didn't fit either species. To me it kind of sounded more in between but closer to Red-bellied.

I was unable to listen to it and feel like it sounds fine for Red-bellied, although admittedly I have very little experience with Red-headeds...Having said that, however, my Merlin Bird ID app doesn't have any Red-headed call that sounds anything like the one provided, so feel pretty confident about it.

Welcome to Whatbird, @robert2008 and @Jessica2008. Any chance the two of you are related? Identical twins sharing identical thoughts, maybe? 🙂

Its weird how the brain makes connections to some things. I see those names and it reminds me of a Jessica and Robert I knew back in 2008. Always wonder how they and the rest of that crazy tribe are doing. Just thought the connection was interesting, but I know that only applies to me so ignore my babble.

Did I confuse you @Charlie Spencer? When @Jessica2008 repeated @robert2008 the first time, she embed a link that wasn't in @robert2008's post. When she repeated @robert2008's second post she once again embedded a link that wasn't originally there, thus the trend I was referring to. Does that help with your confusion, or did something else confuse you?  *knows its easily done*
