Red-bellied Woodpecker

Seen early March 2010.  Two dead trees in our yard seem to be happy camping grounds for these woodpeckers - they might even live there?  They're a little shy, though, they fly away whenever we go outside.  We can hear them inside the house when we listen.  We thought it was a red-headed woodpecker (for obvious reasons) but we found out that it's actually the more common red-bellied type.  It does have red on it's belly, even if you can't see it in the picture!  More info
