MALE YUCATAN WOODPECKER, UXMAL RESORT MAYA,UXMAL,YUCATAN,MEXICO, 11/5/2018

      We can ID this woodpecker as a  Yucatan Woodpecker as follows:
  • Red cap from eye to nape
  • Black and white barring on back, wings and tail. The white barring is thicker than in the very similar Golden-fronted Woodpecker (see post of Golden-fronted Woodpecker)
  •  Light grey on face and underparts
  • Yellow at the bill base (you can just make this out in first photo)
  • The bill is relatively short compared to the bill of the Golden-fronted Woodpecker (see post of Golden-fronted Woodpecker)
        The Yucatan Woodpecker is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 814.
