Juvemile Woodpecker or not?

This question is answered

Hi

Am I right in thinking this is a juvenile or is it an adult. There were three in the same tree in the woods, not the best photo as a bit distant. Seems to be a lot lighter than the usual blackish feathering on the adults I've taken before.

  • Look like an adult male Bob with the red nape, youngsters will have a red head, it certainly looks like he has young though with a beak full of food.
