I need help identifying the type of woodpecker this is. I took the picture at Lion Sands and I forgot the type. Thanks !
Please ID the type of woodpecker
Well certainly if the bird wasn't pecking, no one would have seen it. The noise gave it away. Thanks for everyones comments and help.
first thing i noticed is that - that bird can sure blend in with the tree bark - making it hard to see on that type of tree at a distance-
beautifull photo -
Thanks Gerda, will re-label it and hope its right!
Had a look in my bird-guide here and my guess would be a (female) Golden-tailed Woodpecker - Campethera abingoni ?
