Ever see the red-bellied woodpecker perch on a birch, potato beetle in beak? Neither did the artist, so he painted this picture to find out how it would look. This is the bird with the belly that baffles beginning birders, so its zebra back is turned toward you to avoid a credibility crisis: could you ever again trust the names of the golden-cheeked warbler, the rufous-sided towhee, the rose-breasted grosbeak - even the blue-footed booby - after seeing the red-belly's belly? It's almost all white!

-Charley Harper

He has also said the following about this work, released as Red-Bellied Woodpecker:

Psst! A Red-Bellied Woodpecker! How can you tell? Red crown, zebra back, white belly. I thought you said Red-Bellied. I did. But you just now said white belly. That's right. But which...I mean how...I mean, if this is true, who can ever again believe in the Golden-Cheeked Warbler, the White-Throated Sparrow, the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, the Olive-Backed Thrush - ? Psst! A Red-Headed Woodpecker.
