Liniated Woodpecker

Dryocopus lineatus


I have never seen it so close, just came to my garden, the tree is one of those that ants live inside, do not know the name, even though it obstruct my Ocean view I let it grow there for bird like this one to enjoy!!.

Thank you. ArturoOrtiz, like I said before my bi-lingual brain play trick on me sometimes...glad you brought it up or I would have never realized it. : )

No worries, we love the fact that we have bilingual people on Noah and can communicate with others from all over the world! But he only brought it up to help you out, as he points out correct spelling makes it to where your spotting will show up when people search on the organisms page. You almost got it right this time, just one letter off :)

Thank you, AshleyT, I edited.
Sometimes my bi-lingual brain (Spanish/English) does not allowed me to see mistakes... : (

Oh, is a small detail, it says Linieted Woodpecker instead of lineated, sounds like a small issue but when people search for "lineated" it won't show your great spotting. =)

I believe he is referring to your spelling, Gilma

I do not understand did I not ID it correctly?

ArturoOrtiz 8 years ago

Is Lineated Woodpecker, please correct so it could be found easier. =)
I just saw one a few days ago too.
They are beautiful birds, great shot.

Thank you so much, RiekoS.
