population, its the perfect habitat for these beautiful birds!
Another familiar woodpecker in my area is the Red Bellied Woodpecker. I wish I had a better photo to represent this fellow--I love the dotted white on black of this birds back. They also drum loudly and have a call that sort of rolllssss out...like a chatter.
