  10. Hi Bob,
    Super set of images of this beautiful female.
    They can be very nervous when I'm out and about with them.
    All the best, John

  19. I took my pet woodpecker with me on a walk downtown. Lots of people were pointing and staring. Finally a cop walks up, points in the direction of my woodpecker and said "'Scuse me sir, but I'm going to have to ask you to put away your pecker."

    So I said, "well where is my bird going to perch then?"

  22. Bob - do you think she knew you were there? Some of those shots - it's as if she's looking right at you! Love the profile shots - you can tell that beak can do some "damage" to a tree!
