Corralitas Drive: Woodpecker

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 13, 2010. The unmistakable tapping of a woodpecker drew my eye to a dead tree on Corralitas Drive. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Other than raptors, I'm really not into birds. However, I've always noticed woodpeckers on the Red Car Canyon side of Corralitas Drive. Perhaps it's their sharp black & white feather pattern with a bright red spot atop their heads that make them memorable.
