Ladder-backed Woodpeckers


The two dominant woodpeckers of this area around San Angelo, are the Golden-fronted Woodpecker (Melanerpes auriforns) and Ladder-backed Woodpecker (Picoides scalaris).  Other woodpeckers are pretty much rarities here.  However, the Flickers and Sapsuckers are around in pretty good numbers.  But, today I just wanted to show some of my latest photos of the Ladder-backed.
