Mindre hackspett - Dendrocopos minor - Lesser Spotted Woodpecker
NF Photo 120218, Tornskogen

Jag har hört den här förut, sa de i fågelklubben, men jag har inte sett den förut. Ett nytt X idag.
I have heard this one before, but never seen it. And now I got shots. It is our smallest woodpecker and rarely seen. So, I was lucky. Why is it that peckers seem to jump instead of fly? This one is clearly jumping.  I saw that same behavior once in Costa Rica too. :)

  9. It seems that woodpeckers are shy birds for the most part and are hard to photograph. I love that you provided additional links to go for more information as that is so helpful. Thank you for linking to Nature Notes and have a great nature filled week....Michelle
