Acorn Woodpecker

This is one of the few birds willing to brave the 8:00am crowds (yes, crowds!) at Irvine Regional Park on Memorial Day. Acorn Woodpeckers are always a given at IRP and they didn't disappoint. I managed a few close shots at various times during the morning. Most of the other birds opted to stay high in the trees to escape the human onslaught.
