This is not a very good photo of the White-headed Woodpecker, but it will have to do until I get a better one. The White-headed Woodpecker is found east of the Cascades and is listed on Oregon's Sensitive Species List, which means it is a species that needs conservation attention in order not to fall into the Threaten or Endangered categories.
