On the way home after work, I stopped by Cliff Nelson Park -- it was quite cold, so I couldn't really hold the camera steady! Sorry for the blurry shots... :-/

The woodpeckers, piculets, wrynecks, and sapsuckers are a family, Picidae, of near-passerine birds. Members of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the extreme polar regions. Most species live in forests or woodland habitats, although a few species are known to live in treeless areas, such as rocky hillsides and deserts.
