The picture does not do it justice - there is a bright yellow crown on the male as this one was. Otherwise, it is pretty much like the Hairy or Downy Woodpecker in it's body. It stuck around for a couple of hours, even taking a sleep break on the tree. The book says that an excavation of a cavity for a nest can take up to 12 hours so maybe that is what this one was doing. It is not there now but I will keep an eye out for him tomorrow.
See Ya Bye
