This Woodpecker was in my front yard yesterday and was being very loud...Not his pecking but his voice...He sounded a bit like a Red Tailed Hawk screeching just outside my door ... I went and got my camera and found this fellow perched in my tree yelling profanities down at my cat who also found him to be an interesting looking bird ... He soon flew off to another tree that my kitty was not hunting under... I get woodpeckers in my trees often but I had not seen one of this size or variety in my yard before... The color patterns on him are awesome... What a pretty looking bird !
