Default Lewis Woodpecker Information

I have had a couple of folks asking about Woody Lewis.

A dark woodpecker of open woodlands, the Lewis's Woodpecker is found westward of the

Great Plains. Its slow, deliberate flight reminds one of a crow or jay more than a

woodpecker.

Adult Description

Medium-sized woodpecker.
Head, back, wings, and tail greenish black.
Gray collar and chest.
Dark red face.
Belly pinkish or salmon red.
Wings and tail all dark, without white spots or patches.

Diet

Varies with seasonal abundance of food items; primarily free-living (not wood-boring)

insects older than larval stage, principally ants, bees, and wasps, beetles, and

grasshoppers; acorns or other nuts, and fruit.

The Lewis’ Woodpecker is of high conservation importance, because of its relatively small

and patchy distribution, low overall density, and association with mature montane and

riparian forests. This species is poorly monitored in many parts of its range, but exhibits a

significant long-term decline overall. Populations may have declined by as much as 50 %

since 1966. Associations with various forest types, sensitivity to fragmentation and

silvicultural practices are poorly known and will be important to understand for sustaining

healthy populations.

Rodger, I'll have to say these are the best ever shots I have seen of this bird!
Great control on the DOF too.

They're all great! Somehow, #1 is my favourite. Absolutely beautiful colours, and as Goldwinger note, great control of the DOF. Thanks for sharing these. All the best. Ned
