Gila Woodpecker

This woodpecker visits my back yard 2 or 3 times a day, but he's very shy and hard to photograph. I hear him before I see him. Usually by the time I get my camera he's already moved on. I don't have the best lenses for bird pictures but did manage to capture him once.

Great shot. I have the same problem. There are two that visit my back yard several times a day, but they too are very shy and always gone by the time I grab a camera.

Good catch. It's definitely over my skill level. I once tried to take pictures of some parakeets (they were in a cage at PetsMart!)

Bdw, GILA means CRAZY in Bahasa Malaysia/Indonesia.
