Marco and a few others went exploring while some of us were shooting in front of the Lodge.  After a little while, Marco excitedly came back and told us they had found a pair of this large, exquisite woodpecker.  We quickly grabbed our gear, headed down the path, and fortunately, they hung around long enough for us to get some shots as well.  It was quite tricky positioning our tripods and cameras to get a clear view of them!
