This one should be a female as the top of the head is white. The male is light yellow on the top. I took these in teh end of april but just realized I had not posted them. Strange as it is a new one to my blog. I hope you like her. I do!

  2. Fantastic...... Wow what a post!

    I caught up with this species while in the Kuusamo region of Finland. Unfortunately my images were distant and against a foggy backdrop..... yours are exceptional

  3. What great birds. Is that a silver birch tree they are pecking in to. Our Great Spotted Woodpeckers nested in Silver Birch trunks this year. From findlay
