Quiz Woodpecker 2

Here is another (the 2nd) "quiz woodpecker". It should not be too hard to ID this bird, but I will want species and sex. In the coming months I will be putting up some, arguably, more difficult ones for those of you who like this kind of thing.

This one, I think, is easier: a female Great Spotted Woodpecker. The white tail sides and "closed" face pattern should get us to species, the black nape to sex. And the uniform blackness of the wing would make it an adult.

Again, correct Rick. In fact, I have had a few emails on this one, all correct. As I said, "harder" ones to follow.
