Cardinal Woodpecker

Dendropicos fuscescens

Being one of the more common woodpeckers in South Africa, it is no suprize that this was one of the first birds that I photographed once taking up the hobby. I first recorded this species in December 2009 while visiting my wife’s parents in Ocean View, South Coast KZN and first photographed the bird in Moreleta Kloof, Pretoria in April 2010.
