The Redbellied Woodpecker nest in cavitiies in eother dead or live trees. Both the male and female will help dig out the cavity for their nest. They like to eat insects, nuts, fruits and seeds. At my feeders they prefer the suet and the black oiled sunflower seeds. This past week the juveniles were following the adults around and I was able to see this juvie land on my deck and I had a quick view of a juvenile that had no red at all on its head. I believe my Redbellied Woodie couple had two nestlings.. a male and a female. The female may be the juvie I am see with an all white head.
This juvenile shows a light red on its head down towards its beak, the adult male looks a brighter red to me.

This one also looks like a juvenile Downy Woodpecker
