Acorn Woodpecker

Melanerpes formicivorus


Medium sized woodpecker....


California gold country, sierra foothill approx 800 ft ASL, Oak trees


We were siting at a picnic table below this tree when we heard him start pecking.... continued lunch... took some pictures, he was undaunted just kept the pecking going... Many trees in the area show signs that he and others are around.
