Corvidae

Actually one of the Crow family, but it does have a large, powerful beak, which might have prompted your thoughts of a woodpecker. Northern Three-toed Woodpecker is considerably smaller, has a smaller beak and white stripes on the face. Fantastic to see a Nutcracker, though...really impressive birds!

Wow. I never even thought it could be that.
Ok thanks Ophrys! That's great.
