October 2, 2018

Location: Hobe Sound, Jonathan Dickinson State Park

I'm a Red-headed Woodpecker
I'm easy to spot from a long distance.
Look for blocks of red, black and white,
I'm not mottled like the Red-Bellied, for instance.

(Thanks to David for pointing out this key identifier when identifying woodpeckers from a distance.)
