It's been in the garden for over 3 hours, lol
We used to have a problem with ants until this bird came along... :)
Yes its female
males have a red flash in the black moustache
I think it female as the males have red in the black area that looks like a moustache.

you were too quick for me ss.
Lovely visitor, will definately keep the ants down
Enjoy the world around you and keep taking photographsSee all my photos here Cheers Judi
What a lovely bird! I haven't seen one for years.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Funnily enough I've been getting regular visits from a female too. It certainly gave my lawn a good working over even during the snow.
Nice birds to see. I love that first pic. Such a classic pose - always on the alert from danger above.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. (Chinese proverb)
Great photo`s Mellisa, what a lovely girl you have there.
The early bird catches the worm. No wonder I`m always starving!
Beautiful - we get so many ants in our garden in summer - could do with one of those hanging around but I've never managed to see one yet!
Great photos, Melissa. It's years since I've seen a Green Woodpecker.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
