    Good catch of a Red bellied woodpecker. Not often is the belly seen, prompting questions as to why they were named.

    The Starling has some colors reminding me of a starry night sky.

    In the UK it is known as the Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Normally prefers the peanuts on the feeders.

    Thanks everyone for their replies.

    Nice catch.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that is why they call them Starlings.
