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
What a lovely bird! I haven't seen one for years.
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.
Great photo`s Mellisa, what a lovely girl you have there.
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.
