  ACWO-2624c-72.jpg - Acorn Woodpecker ( Melanerpes formicivorus ) Male on left, female on right in Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, Oakland, CA on Sept. 14, 2014.  Although common just a few miles east of us, this species is rarely observed west of the East Bay Hills.  For unknown reasons, but to the surprise and delight of birders in Berkeley and Oakland, Acorn Woodpeckers have been seen throughout the hill area this month. Photo taken by John Colbert.
