William Leon Dawson on the Acorn Woodpecker: "Our native aristocrat"
"He is unruffled by the operations of the human plebs in whatever disguise...Wigwams, haciendas, or university halls, what matter such frivolities, if only one may go calmly on with the main business of life, which is indubitably the hoarding of acorns."

Not a good photo at all, but these guys just are so funny to watch. Their incessant parrot like "Waka waka " cry...you cant miss them. #birbs#obnoxiousbirds#cute#aristocrats#justdontcare#wildlife
