Red-headed Woodpecker

It doesn’t seem fair that the Red-bellied Woodpecker gets its name because of a small red smudge on its belly, “Well, he should be called red-headed”, is what I’ve heard from some, upon misidentification. Then you meet the real Red-headed Woodpecker, the true champion of red-headedness, and it all makes sense. Just look at that magnificent crimson head!
