Approximately 9 inches head to tail. keeps in groups and very noisy.

The book says it has a black chin and yellow throat but I have a hard time seeing that.

All of the above photo are of a male Acorn Woodpecker.


OK, let's have a look at the female Acorn Woodpecker

The books say it has a shorter or smaller beak than the male.
It also has a black area or bar between the red cap and the rest of the forehead above the its beak.



If you look very close there may be a small amount of very light yellow on its throat
