A medium-sized woodpecker of eastern North American deciduous forests.
Backyard balcony suet feeder in residential neighborhood, Springfield, Missouri, USA.
A European starling (Sturnus vulgaris) "competes" (--that is their nature!) with the woodpecker for the suet. But perhaps unexpectedly, the woodpecker prevails in this battle.
