Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker

This Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker was making an unannounced visit while we were waiting/hoping to get a glimpse of the Rufous Collared Kingfisher (takes you to Wings Among Us). No luck with the Rufous Collared Kingfisher.
Instead, this beautiful Grey-and-Buff Woodpecker came and sadly he didn't stay too long for me to make few more shots. Both Madi and son made some terrific shots of this beautiful Woodpecker though.
