Ladder-backed, Ladder-backed……..


Sounds like the beginning of a 60s rock’n’roll song.  Anyway, I found a few more images of the Ladder-backed Woodpecker when I was perusing my archives.  These are all male of the species.  I don’t know if you have seen them previously.  I do know that a couple of them had never been published before.  Click on any image to see an enlargement.

  1. Great shots with the poses and light, Bob. The only ladder back woodpecker that I have heard of here is the three-toed woodpecker,which has either a black back or a ladder back, and this is coveted by many birders. It’s crest, in the male is yellow.

  2. Lovely shots of a gorgeous bird! I guess if you were going to put a rock’n’roll band together that woodpecker could be the drummer (sorry, Bob, I had to get you back sometime!) 😀

  3. The photos are fabulous..these birds are so colorful and you might say photogenic. I love the first photo where he is hidden slightly by the twigs of the tree..Kudos..Hope you had a Great Thanksgiving..lots of turkey and football..!!!
