Male Woodpecker

These photos are right-side up – it’s the daddy woodpecker who is defying gravity as he brings food to the chicks.

    I don’t think we have woodpeckers in Australia. They’re such interesting birds.

    • I didn’t know that – I wonder what their range is. They hollowed out this tree – it took months and it’s quite a big cavity. Both parents and the chicks fit in it. I wonder how many babies there are.

  2. Great photos! I’ve never managed to take a picture of woodpecker 😦
