Such busy birds, always making holes in the trees. Good capture Tony.

Got him good Tony. I think they are lovely and interesting birds; amazing design, the way their brains are cushioned to enable them to withstand all that hammering into the wood.
They are very rare where I live, and I have only seen them twice. The first time I saw one was at it's nest, which I only spotted because the large chick was making such a racket, but I did see a parent, the daddy I reckon, arrive with some food to shut it up. Unfortunately the few shots I managed to get were blurry, being on almost full zoom and not a high enough speed.

Tooma;..[Thomas]. Yes, that can be the usual sort of difficulty. Distance mostly, so in this moment of good fortune it was like a gift. He was probably curious about me. My white patterned shirt may have seemed like a thick birch bark so he had to come close, and then I turned around. He didn't stay long. Only three shots. TG

I have only seen a woodpecker close up once, and I didn't have my camera with me. Blush Well done.
