Red-bellied Woodpecker


Although I am taking a risk posting this, as Google has been known to remove advertising on a whim, I wanted to share this really handsome Red-bellied Woodpecker that I found (sadly, dead) on the sidewalk in Manhattan. No apparent cause of death, so it could be disease, starvation, old age, or most probably, flying into the side of a building.  I should add that an image of a tiny dead mouse, and a post about dog head transplants had to be removed at the request of Google.  Let's see how this one fares...  Sometimes science blogs will post about dead animals, I think most readers can handle it.
