Here’s Woody, the Woodpecker


Whenever I see woodpeckers, I am reminded of the Woody, the Woodpecker cartoons that I used to see when I was a child growing up.  As I remember it, though, I believe Woody was a Pileated Woodpecker.  These pictures that I have here today are of a Ladder-backed Woodpecker.  The male, I photographed yesterday morning.  Both images of the female I captured earlier today.  All were at San Angelo State Park in San Angelo, Texas.  Enjoy the photos, and as usual, click on any of them to see enlargements.
