Acorn Woodpecker Three

Pictures: Acorn Woodpecker, I like these guys 🙂

This tree seems to be the center for at least 8 or 10 Woodpeckers. I have seem 6 at once near the tree. The tree is broke off and maybe 30 feet(10 meters) high.

I’m not sure what it is that the Woodpecker has here but they are putting them up for the winter I guess, this tree must be the stash tree. Maybe it is a Acorn but it don’t look like one to me 🙂

A nice read on them here This site pretty much says just what I have been seeing and hearing. One other thing I see on this page is that both the male and female have red crowns, the males are just a little larger and comes all the way to the white face while the female stops and has a little black between the red and white.
