Red-bellied woodpecker
Our most common woodpecker, though probably one of the most misidentified - the red on the back of the head is usually the identifying mark people see, and they are often called red-headed woodpecker - a more rare species in our area. You can't often see the red belly that gives this species the name, but it was clearly visible here, along with that amazing tongue in action
