Sitting in my backyard and there he was. Flew away after a couple minutes...very cool big bird
We saw this little girl in your backyard woods. She has made a wonderful series of holes in a dead tree. She has been out there for over an hour so far today.
Flying north of the pioneer parking lot.
Dryocopus is a genus of large powerful woodpeckers, typically 35–45 cm in length. It has representatives in North and South America, Europe, and Asia; some South American species are endangered. It was believed to be closely related to the American genus Campephilus, but it is part of an entirely different lineage of woodpeckers altogether (Benz et al., 2006)
