I can almost hear the tap-tap-tap! Great shot:)

What a handsome fellow he is! I agree with Carla -- I can almost hear his tapping. Great shot.

That's gorgeous! I've never been able to get a decent photo of a woodpecker - man, they sure can move!

Springman said...

Great capture! I love these large woodpeckers, we get the Piliated around these parts but they are rare birds indeed! ;-)WBW

He looks like he's been busy on that wood.
Lovely markings.

Brilliant bird that. I find it fascinating seeing the different birds that we all have in our own countries.

Great looking woodpecker. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

We had one of those little darlins tap tap tapping on the upstairs window ever so long. He never made it in. LOL

Always take 101 over the darned and boring freeway. MB

You have a fine bird shot to add to the beautiful collection on World Bird Wednesday. I like the detail and color you managed to capture. Well done.

Very nice sighting and capture. I see sapsuckers around but never seem to have the camera ready before they're gone.

What an interesting sapsucker! Great photo.

interesting coloring on that bird. I don´t think we have sapsuckers in Sweden.

What a lovely bird. I thought it was a Woodpecker and had to google sapsucker. Thanks for sharing.
