Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus).  There is a Red-bellied Woodpecker on the tree in the center of the photograph.  It gets its name from a very slight pinkish color on its belly, which can only be seen in optimal conditions.  A red stripe from head to neck and thin black-and-white stripes are other distinguishing characteristics.  The Red-bellied Woodpecker is found throughout most of Eastern North America (Cornell Lab of Ornithology) and is very common in Hunterdon County.
