Having just returned from a wet long weekend at Wilderness NP, Ebb & Flow camp, I am so happy to report that we saw an Olive Woodpecker on our visit. My question to the rest of you seasoned birder's is if this woodpecker is a common sighting. I do acknowledge that my Newmans indicates that it is a common resident. :redface: For us new birders, it was a major score!

Congatulations! I have read multiple reports of people seeing the OWP at EBb&Flow although it is more common at the big tree at Woodville. It is one of my real bogey birds. After 30-40 hours of birding over many days and many visits, I have never seen it there. Did pick up the Knysna Woodpecket at one occasion though.
