White-headed Woodpecker

Eastern Oregon woodpecker

Viewed 16 Times

This picture was taken in Cabin Lake, Oregon. The environment is the transition between conifer forest and high desert, typical of much of eastern central Oregon.

A number of different species of woodpeckers thrive here, but this appears to the be dominant one.

The picture was taken at a small pool of water that is present year round; the only one in several square miles. A stream of woodpeckers visit this every morning providing many opportunities for images.

The White-headed Woodpecker is such an unusual looking bird. I never heard of them before – thanks for sharing the pic.
