Three-toed Woodpecker: female alpinus race photo

This photo from Schwarzer Grat, Lkr. Ravensburg, SW Germany was taken on 24.06.2007 (Ralph Martin). It shows a classic alpinus race bird. Note the white back is barred with black and the heavily barred breast, belly and flanks. The lack of yellow on the crown indicates a female.
