This is for sure a young woodpecker. The tapping of adult is heard in background and although unseen, it is most likely to be this species. The other two species in the area do not tap as vigorously as this (C. nubica & D. fuscescens). D. goertae is not at this site., hence the uncertainty of the identification.
