Only time i saw this species in five months working there. Probably the most rare woodpecker of the country.
I watched this track being made. The woodpecker was eating cracked corn near a bird feeder.
Observed at The Willows at Pyramid Lake at approximately 10am on a clear day.
A couple seen in one afternoon.
Female on a Ceibo tree.
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.
