Woodpecker out back.

I spotted this woodpecker working on one of the trees out back today.  The tree is a hackberry and from the sound of his rapping on the branches, it might be a casualty of the drought.  But losing a hackberry isn’t a great loss.

I think this is a Ladder-backed woodpecker.

Apologies for the crummy photo quality.  He was way up near the top of the tree and I had to use my 12x zoom.  He didn’t seem very perturbed though, he paid no attention to me as I walked under the tree trying to get a shot.

One thought on “Woody.”

  1. Ladder-backed…that’s a new one for me, cool! Love to watch the birds! Thanks for sharing.
