Ran into three of these guys the other day doing a little courting I believe. Shot in fading light. I need to go back because I would love to get a GOOD shot of one of these.

indeed it is...

but I think you've done well.

I remember few months back when I still had long lenses I was trying to chase green woodpeckers and great spotted woodpeckers here in UK, but found it nearly impossible to get decent shot....
so well done!

Thank you Blue and axl for the comments. I went back yesterday to see if I could spot them again but they weren't around, will have to keep trying.
