Heard steady, slow drumming onto tree bark. It was difficult to capture a photograph. I think I spotted more than one. I thought I saw red in at least one of the bird's head, but the photos don't show this. Had white strip down back. It was quite noisy and quite beautiful. This is a great place for birding.
Nine families of largely arboreal birds make up the order Piciformes, the best-known of them being the Picidae, which includes the woodpeckers and close relatives. The Piciformes contain about 67 living genera with a little over 400 species, of which the Picidae (woodpeckers and relatives) make up about half.
