They live in desert washes and riparian thickets of the Southwest and central Mexico.
They can be recognized by their long, down-curved bill. Plus their long tail.
It's mellow song makes it one of the deserts finest tunes.
They are a grayish brown all over.
Then there is the"ladder-back woodpecker".
Will folks we see you in the next posting, as DesertDale has arrived, back from his ride all ready. That was a short, sweet run. Kitfoxgal
