Green Woodpecker

By rogerdoger  
Taken yesterday evening at a private hide in Ipswich. I had been in the hide for about six hours I was just about to pack up and two Green Woodpeckers came down to the pond/bird bath. They spent about 10mins bathing and playing. This one even opened its mouth as if to call. Just one of those magical moment that make all the fruitless time spent in a hide with nothing happening all worth while. I will be posting more shots from the session at in a few days
