Yes, it is a female Red-Bellied Woodpecker! The male's red extends across the top of the head, whereas the female's only goes part way.

aren't these woodpeckers neat! they have to be really hungry to get them to our feeder and they are quite illusive in the summer tho i often will catch a glimpse of them digging a worm out of the meadow...very pretty, neat that you got such a good picture! enjoy!
