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.
Buff-necked WoodpeckerLocal name: Belatuk Leher Kuning

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.
