Nice shot. We have quite a few different woodpeckers in my area.
Occasionally seen in my neighborhood is a Florida pileated woodpecker.
Quite a site to see that one.

Default #pileated woodpecker

I googled and watched some videos. What a cute fellow, ... and definitely the natural model of Disney's Woody Woodpecker.

Just for the record, Woody was definitely not Disney and was never
associated with the Disney machine. He was the creation of an
independent animator (Walter Lantz) and I believe his rights are still
owned by Universal Studios.

Thanks a lot. I didn't hear of Walter Lantz before. I'm sorry for having delivered some kind of 'fake news'. but I'm always happy to learn something new, so I highly appreciate your objection. best regards (W)

I know of Lantz but when you said the Disney model for Woody I sat
here and agreed. Been a long time since I watched a Woody cartoon.

The pileated woodpecker was the model for Woody though. The real
life pileated are quite large as far as woodpeckers go. Their large
size is how I know one is close by. They make a solid very audible
thunk when they peck at a tree. Not machine gun style like a smaller
woodpecker. Rather thunk, short pause, thunk and so on.
