A bit early, but wishing you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
I’m off on vacation, see you again in 2016 🙂
Here are two pictures of a male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) I took this morning.
A female Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), drumming high up in the tree tops.. Zoomed in with my SX60

Since the text in the slideshow doesn’t show very well, I list the birds below as well:
1. European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), 2. Common Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), 3. European Greenfinch (Chloris chloris), 4. Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus), 5. Common Firecrest (Regulus ignicapilla), 6. Eurasian Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris), 7. Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)
Two pictures of a great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in the Waterleidingduinen outside Amsterdam this week. You can tell it’s a juvenile because the top of the head is crimson, when it gets older that part will become black and if it’s a male he will get a crimson spot on his nape instead.
