Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 10th August, 2013)
Beautiful shot John,this is a female ,the males have a red nape patch,love the woodpecker always seems to pose for the camera,nice to have you back John keep um coming.
Love this! He looks so self-confident!
Beautiful John....we don't get them here in Australia like that....would be a good pick for my album.....cheers!!!
Well caught. Excellent
"EEEEER" hello people im not getting a wigan conection with this piccy.....it could be anywhere
Good one John,some people may be interested in a program that they have at Canterbury university.They are trying to clone birds like they did with Dolly the sheep to see if colours can be past from one to another.They did this with a male woodpecker and a white homing pigeon.The colours didn't cross over,but every time the bird came home after a flight it knocked on the door!
Lovely photo, John, wish I had your skill for wildlife photography.
dirty harry,EEEEER, if a person from Wigan takes a photo of "anything" and some people from wigan like it,like myself, there is the coNnection
Dirty Harry it could also fly into the centre of Wigan at any time it chooses....so does that sound plausible to you....I think it is a Wigan Woodpecker.....so I wouldn't be in a rush to decide it is nothing to do with a connection to good old Wiggin.....cheers!!!
Love it ,watching MY peckers right now. Youngsters still have their red caps.
It must be a Wiganer, it's got it's cherry and white shirt on. Before you Latics fans have a moan, had it been a Bluebird i would have said the same thing,lol. Nice photo John well caught.
Surely she`s not pecked all that wood away!
I haven't posted much lately due to comments by idiots who have nothing better than to slag off peoples photos, if you can do better lets see them big mouths
I have one of female she came in garden yesterday about 630am and also a young one would you believe
Well done john. Nice photo of nature and not easy to take. Ignore the idiots they will go away, Keep posting and let us enjoy the photos
