BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

MORE PILEATED (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

36 Comments

In the first photo the bird is checking his progress so far. In the other two the woodpecker has just landed. The condition of the tree is the result of a short lived but powerful storm that hit this area last fall and left hundreds of trees severely damaged or destroyed. Fortunately for the birds and we nature lovers enough remain for the birds to breed and build their nests. Always a treat to see these flashy birds in the woods.

    The woodpecker is such an infrequent visitor to our spot.
    To get shots like these is a real treat. Well done.

  15. A beautiful bird. I wonder if the scratch marks in the first photograph are the result of the claws of the bird.
