Wooodies Cousin ( Has Been Found )

Probably about 4 miles south of Woodies tree I saw his cousin (Woooody #2). My RDS worked well I caught him when he landed on the limb then followed him to the tree top. He was not at either location over 10 seconds. The burst didn't get to the normal 4 photos at either place, he was in a hurry to move on.

Roger, Genece nailed it. Those are mighty fine shots. Do you know if he is a first cousin once removed? He does look a lot like Woody.

Jerry you probably are right about they must be close relatives. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Where I live we have the Downey, the Hairy, and the Pileated woodpecker. The first two are fairly easy to photo but the last one sounds like it has the same traits as your woodpecker which I think is the Lewis. There are lots of them around and can be heard but very seldom seen. So far my captures of this bird are zero. My point is---Nice work.

Great shots, sharp and clear. Your technique, giving us thewide angle first and then presenting the close-up.is also unique and noteworthy - works very well in drawing ourattention and making us spend some time looking at the pics.

Thands dwssas, seems like they don't care much for people or cameras.
