Great wildlife study of this Kingfisher! (male Great Spotted Woodpecker - Dendrocopos major). Even if you don't always get the birds names right you manage to take some great photos.

This certainly supports sexual stereotypes - that the male leaves the nest without doing any tidying up. If this was the felame she would have fed the young and done some cleaning and would be carrying out some of the rubbish.

See you tonight and I've even remembered about the voting thing!

He's off to T's for coffee. Having eaten all the wood from that hole he made I doubt he'll have room for a doughnut, though.

A common occurance here Danny.The male leaving the nest after being thoroughly fed up !! And I must take issue with George regarding his comment about the females taking some of the rubbish out.What is wrong with them taking ALL of the rubbish out !!
Good shot.
Mick.

He has a guilty, nervous look - are you sure that's his own nest that he's been visiting?

What can be better than a Northumbrian blether??
Coming, going, tidying up... male, female... rubbish! Love every word of it................!
My comment: He was just too big for the female to get him out of the nest in her beak together with all the rubbish... so she kicked him in his a.... and showed him through that tiny hole! That for the surprised expression in his face.
Sorry! Wink

A lovely image captured in the right moment,
Johanna
