I wouldn't have known the difference


Thanks Fred

The differences are significant.
The MSW has a red cap and pink belly
The GSW has a black cap and an orange forehead
The LSW is much smaller, has a red cap but no pink belly

As very well shown in your pictures!

(says the guy that learned this stuff only yesterday )
Yeah, if you see lesser spotted woodpecker, the small size easily helps to identify it from the larger woodpeckers despite its back has quite similar patterns as white-backed woodpecker (Dendrocopos leucotos):


α77 + Sony 70-400G @ 360 mm, f/5.6, 1/500 s, ISO 320

And of course, you Dutch don't actually have to worry about this since white-backed woodpeckers do not live in The Netherlands. Likewise, I haven't yet seen any middle spotted woodpeckers here since they do not nest in Finland and only one individual of that species has ever been observed in this country.

PS. And Dopol, although that finch photo is quite nice, it would be much better if complete reflection would be in the frame.

Thanks Heikki

I did have them with full reflection, but I liked the overall feel of the finch shot better

How do they do that???



I was watching this juvenile Martin who seemed fascinated as the adults clung to the underside of a railing above him.

This was the only shot where I could see part of their claws.



It appeared they just wanted their heads in the shade.



Doesn't look too hard, I think I'll fly up and give it a go..



After several attempts there was just no way this was going to succeed.
