Bird Spotting

The Great Spotted Woodpecker      Dendrocopos  major

A juvenile G S Woodpecker outside it's nest.

 

I think he's  watching and listening for his mother's return.


Certainly scratching


Getting a bit fed up of waiting there


He decides to climb the tree,  at which point my batteries ran out. Bother!!


This post is included in the WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY initiative.

Oh darn, I used to hate it when the battery goes out at the height of something grand! I now have 2 batteries and both go where my camera goes. I adore woodpeckers and your great spotted one is certainly photo worthy, so cute! Love the little red belly. Have a wonderful day!

Dear Sonija, these photos show something that, without you, I would never have had the opportunity to admire ....I understand the disappointment when the batteries are finished !
I wish you a nice weekend in your beautiful habitat, waiting for new pictures to admire, from you.
Hugs and kisses ,Rita

Wonderful pictures of one of my favourite birds. We have no woodpeckers in Australia, so its nice to see one again.
