Found this bird dead in my yard in Moorestown, NJ on Dec 29th, 2012? It looked to be a Redheaded Woodpecker but the markings don't match it seems to me?

I perched it on the flower box for the picture but it is deceased.

Yes, it's a yellow-bellied sapsucker. I'm sorry to see such a beautiful bird was found dead in your yard. I have house finches hit a sliding glass door two of three times a year and kill themselves, and I get Mourning Doves and Gambel's Quail occasionally attacked by Copper's Hawks or Sharp Shinned Hawks in my yard, but I've never had that beautiful of a dead bird found in my yard.

Thank you for the ID.

I do not know the cause of death as it apprears to have died of natural causes since there are no visible signs of injury.

Is there a society that birdwatches zombie birds? Because that bird is clearly a zombie. ;)

Agree with yellow-bellied sapsucker, a type of woodpecker. A red-headed woodpecker has a solid red head and upper breast with no markings, and the body is large black and white patches.

-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.
