This image was made at Dandeli Wildlife sanctuary , Karnataka India

Shot with a canon + 400 

Was clicked at the peak of summers when these guys come down to water and water bodies also are very few so easier to click them

Called the Rufous Woodpecker male

A female Cream-colored Woodpecker at the forest near Araras Lodge, in Northern Pantanal. I attracted her within photo distance. What's interesting about this species is that they are highly specialized in feeding on arboreal termite and ant nests.

Dendropicos goertae.JPG

 

Dendropicos goertae

 

Photographed at 8:56 am on 9 February, 2015 in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 800, 1/6400 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

We were driving along the wooded eastern shore of Lake Nakuru, which is exceptionally full of a wide variety of bird species.

 

Hearing the unmistakable rat-a-tat of a woodpecker, I looked around, soon spotting this male Dendropicos goertae, Grey Woodpecker. 

 

It's head plumage was wet owing to damp conditions after an overnight downpour. Such energy! It circled the tree trunk many times, seemingly inexhaustible in its work.

Wow! Those are both beauties!

 

By that, I mean the birds and the photos themselves.

 

Very, very nice.

Downy Woodpeckers are small versions of the classic woodpeckers.  They are also the most common woodpecker in Wisconsin, USA, and can become a pest if your house has wood siding.  This Downy was photographed in spring along the shore of Lake Butte Des Morts in central Wisconsin.

I've wondered for years if woodpeckers ever sought food in wood-sided structures.

 

Thanks to your post, now I know.

 

That's a lovely image.

Far beyond wonderful !!!!!!!!!!

 

What a woodpecker selection!

 

The Ecuadorian Scale-breasted Woodpecker is a beauty.

 

The Golden-naped Woodpecker pair is a treat.

 

You've spoiled us for choice.

 

Many Thanks!

Especially love that Pale-billed Woodpecker/Belize shot. Almost looks like a perfect chain of woodpeckers. Nice job.

Not only a beautiful bird, but also a pleasing photograph.

 

Is it perched on a fir? 

 

Such vivid plumage!

 

Thank you for posting it.
