Bearded Woodpecker

Dendropicos namaquus

I first recorded seeing this big woodpecker in May 2010 while visiting Mkuzi Falls Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal. We have seen it on a number of occasions since then but I was only able to get  decent photographs of the bird in April 2012 while having coffee in the picnic area of Borakalalo National Park.
