Going it Alone

By teocali
Full frame capture of a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in our garden a couple of evenings ago. Juveniles have a red cap on the front of their heads, which disappears with maturity. Adult males have a red patch at the back of the neck and females do not.

Thank you all for your C&Cs on yewterday's upload and a big THANK YOU to Richard (MossyOak for his UA - really appreciated Smile
