Woodpeckers

This cute baby and its mama I spotted in Bucharest just a few weeks ago join Camera Critters and NatureFootstep Winged.

They are Great Spotted Woodpeckers (Dendrocopos major), quite common in Europe and northern Asia.

Cool and definitely different from the woodpeckers that come to the feeders in my yard. :)

The little head peaking out of the nest is too sweet! We don't have woodpeckers here but I remember hearing them in Michigan. I like their rhythm. Beautiful photos, Francisca :D

PS: Happy I could help out a little. Your large size photos look great! :D

Just realised that I've never ever seen a woodpecker... not even in the zoo (which I haven't been in ages). Only on TV - cartoons...

Both are great but the 'at the window' shot is so very cute! :-)

Nice photos. My litttle son likes the woodpeckers very much after he heard and saw one, but from a distance. Now he is waiting to see another one.
