woodpecker in tx NEW
by: roma

hi, i was going thru old emails and ran across yours. my tiny tablet could,t show the bird well but there is a woodpecker with a white head and beak,called,ta da! the white headed woodpecker!

this bird occurs in the pacific northwest and scales bark off trees to reach the insects below. this is the second time someone asked about thus bird, the other wss on long island ny.

i,m wondering if it came on a load of logs in a ship. i hope it wss ok,a long way to aconiferous forest.

I am not familiar with a woodpecker that has the coloring of the bird in your pic and the pic isn't clear enough to ID the species.

If the bird did not fly away, it needs to be placed in a warm, dark, quiet, room away from drafts. Hopefully it was only stunned and it will recover.

If you have a local Audubon, call them and they can advise you on how to care for it. If you send them the pic they very well may be able to ID it for you too.
