I see about 3 different types of Woodpeckers in my yard here in Arkansas.  Here are some pictures of them. The first one is the “Common Flicker Woodpecker” who is about 10 1/2 inches long.

The next one is 8 1/2 inches in length.  It is called the “Red-Bellied Woodpecker”.  I have no idea why they called it that, it’s belly is white and it’s head is red.

Our smallest woodpecker is the “Downy Woodpecker” and he is about 5 1/4 inches long.
