A few days ago I posted "Mrs. Woodpecker" and today I would like to introduce you the man of the house.
The male is much more visible and less shy but you can see by the feathers on his back that the two are related. From the angle of this photo, it doesn't look like it but the male is much larger than the female. There is one strange thing about this shot...you don't see the woodpeckers on the ground much...usually they are climbing up the trunks of trees. But as you can see, he found a morsel on the ground that looked pretty tasty to him!
Simply Heather has a great video (2 videos) of woodpeckers in Vermont...they make them a lot bigger up there!... check out Simply Heather's Videos.
