The Acorn Woodpecker was pecking a tree in Griffith Park.
Had a coronary for a split second, think in' I might be looking at a Pileated! Then I heard the...squawking mob.
I have lived on this property over 12yrs. and I had never observed acorn woodpeckers, Melanerpes formicivorus, here until about 2 yrs ago.
taken along the side of the road to Savegre Lodge.
