Would love to see everyone's woodpecker pictures!  I'll get it started with a mediocre picture of a downy that visited my patio feeder the other day.

I've got a couple flicker pics, too. These males were showing off for the female, who is picture below.

If I were a flicker and a lady waddled by, I would totally be waving that gorgeous mustache and swinging that speckled chest. These males are bee-ootiful!

Two woodpeckers I'd love to have on my list from Lyceel's shots - Red-bellied and Pileated!

Here's an Acorn Woodpecker - another of my favorites.....

Great pictures! We don't have those last 3 in our area (or the ones from Costa Rica). Nice pileated pic, too. They are so shy and are difficult to photograph!
