While the iPhone 6S+ has a nice camera, it isn't always the best tool for the job. So here are some shots of the Three-toed Woodpecker taken with a more appropriate piece of equipment.*

We saw four of them here.

At first we thought there was just one. And then someone shouted there were two! And then I spotted the nest hole.

We saw the two adults flying about, going to and from the nest. We saw the juvenile with its head in the hole. And once it flew off, one of our group saw a chick begging in the next. It is possible that there were several chicks in the nest.

Very cool. Especially when we thought we weren't going to see any at all.


*Canon 60D with a 100-400mm IS L lens.
