Golden-fronted Woodpecker with red berry

Buy this picture

Golden-fronted Woodpeckers live in South Texas and Mexico, with the majority of the population in Mexico. It tickled me to photograph this Male Golden-fronted Woodpecker with a red berry in its beak. I set up a tripod and 800mm lens because they are very skittish. They eat insects, berries and seed. I watched quite a while for this one to grab a berry from the plant where he touched down.
