Don't delete that blur picture, because sometime it will be very valuable as in this case.
I shot only this two frames, one blurry and another with half of the bird's body hidden by tree trunk.
This pic shows the characteristic ID - pale yellow/buff at the neck and red sub-moustachial for male species.

Very nice. I so rarely see woodpeckers.

I have never seen one of these before today. I have been reopening my coopers hawk blog but still have a long ways to go.

"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
