It has to be a red bellied woodpecker
by: Joseph

I know it's wierd , the red is only on the top of it's head, and called a red "bellied" woodpecker, but the black and white plumage is what tells me it has to be a red bellied woodpecker, sometimes it even looks like a perfect checkerboard look see a photo here .... http://www.flickr.com/photos/80166300@N02/9269771693/in/photostream/
in my Flickr photostream...it is an internet photo but is exactly the kind I see in my yard..
