it was around 4:00pm when saw a little bird fly up to a tree. I had figured it was a woodpecker because I saw the red mohawk, and it started to peck at the tree

Description from Wikipedia

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)

No range data available.
