Too bad about the ISO, Mark, but beautifully captured nevertheless. And what a beautiful species as well.

Great looking bird, Mark, and I love these shots. Assuming these were 1D4? ISO8000 isn't overbearing at all.

Very nice shots! We have one (or more, I'm not observant enough to know) in our garden. I saw him on the birdfeeder the other day right outside the window, but by the time I got the longer lens on he'd spotted me and retreated. I got a shot of him at the bottom of the garden but it's small and not very sharp so I won't post it here.

I know they're not the easiest to capture, well done!

Canny garden visitor Mark, and considering the ISO worked out well.

Thanks everyone. They would have had more detail if I could have started with a lower ISO but no way would I pass these up :)
Ian, yes, these were with the 1DIV.

Beautiful, thank you! I remember seeing a few when I was a kid, but I bet it's been over 30 years since I've seen any type of woodpecker around these parts. Now peckerwoods....... that's another story!
