OK, I think this is my last contribution to the woodpecker and jay (extended) week. It isn't the best shot, but I wanted to include this Arizona Woodpecker because it is so different from most, and since its US range is so limited, to the very southeast corner of Arizona, it's not one that most people have seen. It is the only woodpecker with a solid brown back. The red on its head indicates that it is a male. It is an uncommon resident of foothills and mountain canyons, usually in pine-oak woodlands.
I hope you haven't gotten sick of all the woodpeckers and jays--until Wayne and I started this, I hadn't realized how many of these birds I had photographed. It has been fun for me to share these with you, and to see Wayne's posts as well.
