Congrats ;) It's easier to hear the woodpecker then to spot it. Owls usually move in to old woodpecker holes, I always look for blackwoodpecker holes under the breeding season. It can be a chance to spot a owl later ;)
Thanks! I saw it for the first time in my life...but just watched a documentary saying black woodpecker are important for small owl species because they open the holes in the trees that fits the owls :)
Great picture, love this bird. This is my favorite woodpecker..
True, we can always hear them but really hard to see. This bird wasn't that shy so I could get a bit close.
I wish I'll have a chance to photograph woodpecker myself one day! I can always hear them but never see them :/
Yea, finally we got some sun so I could go out! It's not a rare bird but I also saw it for the first time.
wohooo, you are back!!! Never seen this one before, really nice bird! Rare find?
