A Golden-fronted Woodpecker from South Texas is perched picturesquely on this berry-ladened tree branch.
These birds eat as much fruits and nuts as they do insects and bugs. So much so, that they have been known to have purple stains on their face feathers from eating an abundance of prickly pear cactus fruit.
This striped-back woodpecker has the characteristic golden feathers on its face and head. Taken on location in South Texas during a Bird Photo Workshop.
