Dove Family?

by Debbie
(Henderson, NV)

This bird is a little bigger in size than the common Mourning Dove that visits our backyard.


We've never seen anything like this and would appreciate any help identifying him.

Thank you!

That is awesome! I've never seen a wood pecker in this town! I'm so glad he chose our backyard!
