#481 Puerto Rican Woodpecker

After breakfast I took a walk around the grounds of the hotel. Lots of good birds including Common Ground Dove, White-winged Dove, and American Kestrel; but the highlight was my first Puerto Rican Woodpecker:

A fellow guest pointed me to its hole in a palm tree. I’ve kept looking for it, but so far I’ve only seen it once.

I should have used a flash and a Better Beamer for this one, but mostly I don’t need that out here in the Caribbean sun, and the woodpecker didn’t give me time to set it up.
