Greater spotted woodpecker (juvenile)

Dendrocopos major


There were a few of these taking it in turns on the feeding station but this ones markings were slightly different and it had a red crown which is indicative of a Juvenile bird. It also didn't stay still long enough for many photos, usually around the other side of the tree stump.


Outside the lodge near the Martinselkonen wilds centre, suomussalmi.


There is also a Great tit on top of the post but this is too small to crop and make a separate spotting of.
