Orange Backed Woodpecker

Spotted this pair of beautiful Orange-backed woodpecker when I was taking shelter from the rain.

They were drumming away for worm.
The female (photo below) had pale back and grey brown underparts.

Notice also she spread her legs wide to hug her self so close to the surface of the tree when she peck.

The male is spotting reddish underparts and crown.

Here is a close-up on the handsome fella.
