  9. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful set of images of this delightful bird, always a pleasure to see when out.
    We get a few visiting the nut feeder but not the best of places to get an image.
    All the best, John

      I'm pleased that she/he comes to nut feeders, that must have been gloreous.

  18. Hi, Bob! How do you know they’re female woodpeckers? Is it a stupid question to ask? Anyway, they are beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
