Lewis's Woodpecker at Caspers Park

A Lewis's Woodpecker has been seen not far from the entrance to Caspers Park along the main road near the turn-off for Ortega Flats campground. Park personnel say it has been in the area for several days.  I located it by its call this morning in the drizzling rain.  It was flying back and forth over the main road and perching at the tops of the trees. Poor photos show reddish breast and face and whitish collar.
