I saw three of them on this tree, all pecking for food.

Thanks Tukup and Zlatan! And Tukup - sometimes a population is in decline in one location but the species is overall secure. In this part of Florida they are extremely common. I see them in almost every forest I walk in. If you learn what their excavations look like that can be helpful because they are usually much larger than what other woodpeckers make. You could also try and ask local birders where they see them and this is usually a valuable resource.
wow - beautiful birds! Great stuff Machi
I C IUCN lists them as "least concerned." I was thinking they were getting scarce. Nice to catch three at once. Magnificent birds. Thanks Machi. Nice series.
