    The Red-headed Woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) is easy to recognize because of his striking plumage and a distinctive “quirr” call. He can also be seen more often than other woodpeckers flying out from perches to catch insects in midair.

    Red-headed woodpeckers are on the Audubon’s WatchList of conservation concern. Throughout their range, they have declined by 50% over the last 40 years. Reasons for the decline are not clear.
