They are very pretty birds.
I'd imagine a much larger beak to chisel into trees.

Here are a few from my side

They are very nice
One on a mission, the other reminds me of an old folk sitting and watching the world go by. Lovely

We have two birds that look almost alike here in North America. One is a downey woodpecker and the other is a hairy woodpecker. The hairy is a larger bird than a downey but other that that the most often used field marking is the hairy has a longer beak.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

This one should have been posted long ago, maybe it was, I can't find it in my gallery--so sorry if a repost.

The proverbial early bird.

I forgot to change my settings, hence the small aperture...and slow shutter speed.

Absolutely beautiful shot Gene. I'm a little worried that his long beak could possibly scratch my monitor screen.  :p :lol:
