A Black Woodpecker


A female Black Woodpecker in Onuma yesterday................







It was by the side of the road but a combination of its long body shape, twigs in the way an constant moving around made it a little tricky yo photograph. This burst seemed to be the best..........




They aren't shy at all but this kind of close encounter is quite rare.....maybe once a year if I'm lucky.

  1. I have tried several times to find this species, so far without success. I will try again later this year in Slovenia and Croatia.

    1. I've seen them in southern Germany. They are apparently increasing in numbers in central Europe so you have a decent chance........

  2. Saw one in Poland a few years ago but not crippling views like this - you must be chuffed

  3. Saw one in north China on March 9th - better light for me, but more clutter in the way.
    They can really blitz those trees !
