ladderback woodpeckers

been a good spring for new birds this year.  The only problem is that
we see them and identify them, but they only stay for a couple of
days.  We’ve had Eurasian collared doves, a sharp-shinned hawk, a
roadrunner, and even heard some calls of different birds that we
haven’t been able to see.  They’re way up in our Chinese elm trees.

The latest was a pair of ladderback woodpeckers, but so far we only
saw them for two days in a row and haven’t seen them since then.

I found this photo on another website.  They got it from the Stokes Field Guide.
