Red Bellied Woodpecker in Western NYS?

Recommended Posts


The bird in the attached photos has been coming to our suet feeder for about a week.  We live 30 miles south of Rochester NY.  I didn't think Red Bellied Woodpeckers wintered around here.  Your help would be appreciated in identifying this bird!

Looked up rochester, saw it's in Monroe county and used that to search eBird. You can see >>HERE<< that the data shows they're quite present year round in that area.  And they do enjoy that suet...

That's quite a resource, thanks.
