Male Woodpecker (dendrcopos major)
A lovely Woodpecker that I found a few days ago. Had to introduce a fairly big crop as he was on the far side of a river from me and I could not get closer. Although I did not see any young I am certain they were there in the nest as both he and his mate made many visits with food whilst I was watching.
Very pleased with the super response to my foray into the floral field with 'May Blossom'. You are all very generous and I thank you.

Super capture Ron - keep your eye on it for when the young are looking out of the hole.

a great woodpecker, but it is that fabulous hole he has made that gets my vote!

Great image despite the large crop Ron.
Shows well how they use their tail to prop themselves against the tree.

Still a very useful image Ron, a few years back i was trying to find where a pair of these were nesting but no luck. Would be nice to see the young ones leave the nest
