Black and white bird with red crown. Males red crown touches the white face where as the females have black in between the red and white. The female can be seen at my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/857...
California Fan Palm at Sandy Lake in Kit Carson Park. There are Oak trees nearby.
Since this bird's primary food source is acorns, most likely this one is making holes in the palm tree to store them. As the acorn dries out and shrinks, they move them to smaller holes for safe storage.
Lat: 33.08, Long: -117.06
