Brother and I went for another walk and we came across this woodpecker. Judging by the colors (and lack there of) we are assuming it is female. Before this, I had never seen a woodpecker before. According to a little research on Google, she is a Ladderback Woodpecker. I think she’s rather pretty.
She was not impressed, however, by my attempts at photographing her. At first she tolerated it rather well (she let me come up to the tree) but when I tried to take a few more pictures, she began throwing bark at me and then walk up the tree. I posted a video on my youtube page of it.
