More from the Caribbean... Hispaniolan Woodpecker

Here is a Hispaniolan Woodpecker Melanerpes striatus, that I photographed in the Dominican Republic in December 2014. This woodpecker is endemic to the island of Hispaniola (Dom Rep & Haiti) in the Greater Antilles, and is widespread and common in the former, less so in Haiti. This is a female, note the black mid and fore crown (males have a complete red crown).
