Great Spotted Woodpecker. Not the best of shots but a first for me. Taken with my bridge camera at approx 1200mm. Two different woodpeckers in one day, I couldn`t believe my luck!

Meneer heeft in alle bomen van de tuin gehakt... tenslotte kwam hij zich tegoed doen aan de zonnebloem en pijnboompitten in het mandje en even later op 1 meter van het raam op het vogelhuisje van mijn schoonmoeder, die ik natuurlijk mee moest nemen...:))

A great day in Arrábida in the excellent company of Jacinto Oliveira.


Woody being Woody ^^


Cheers everyone.

Great spotted woodpecker.......grote bonte specht

Best viewed large if you have time.

Shot though our room window, light rain outside, note his wet plumage.

He comes every May, for about 10 days only and demolishes the fat balls.In this shot the fat ball is stuck around his beak He stays for maybe 2 minutes before flying off towards the park.

I keep the camera handy and its pot luck to catch him and I tend to get only two opportunities in the 10 days to get the camera in time for a burst of shots.

"Great Spotted Woodpecker"

A rather busy period in our garden as the woodpeckers fledge. For this female there are three mouths to feed and little time for anything else.

The second from encounter with this curious woodpecker. Perhaps he thought the click of my shutter was a relative?

I know the photos are of rather bad quality, taken from afar, through a glass in a very dark rainy day, but I do not resist the temptation to show the first record I have of a woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) that came around my house.


Bem que as fotos são de bastante má qualidade, tiradas através de um vidro de longe, num dia bastante escuro e chuvoso, mas não resisto a mostrar o primeiro registo de um pica-pau (Dendrocopos major) junto à minha casa.
