image: Lewis's Woodpecker

July 20, 1805,

The lewis woodpecker is smaller than the flicker. The woodpecker has beautiful metallic greenish black back and a gray collar and breast with a pinkish red belly. I spotted this woodpecker pecking away at an oak tree and i was amazed at the strength of woodpecker beak. It's beak was penitrating  the oak tree like nothing. You better watch out for this little guy or he might peck you.
