Golden-fronted Woodpecker (Melanerpes aurifrons)

3 August 2016
Fort Clark Springs
Brackettville, Kinney County, Texas

Not the best of pics given we were pointing the camera against a gray sky and what light there was at the time, but it had the yellow lores and nape of a mature (male?) bird. It perched temporarily atop the dry uppermost twigs of a very tall pecan tree.
