Middle Spotted Woodpecker

A couple of these woodpeckers came onto my property searching for grubs underneath the bark of the trees.l was in the bedroom when l took this video.
The temperature outside was -10 midday.
You will notice how they creep up a tree.l can see how other species are similar in character and behaviour to the woodpecker.The treecreeper is almost similar to the woodpeckers behaviour.

Re: Middle Spotted Woodpecker

Yesterday I heard a Woodpecker in my garden. I've never had one before and try as I might I couldn't see him. I'm very excited and hope I can get some photos. We have a huge Oak tree on the border of our garden and I suspect Woodie is on the other side. We've also got a pair of Nuthatch's who have never visited us before, I suspect the Nijer seds I bought recently have enticed them in. The little Blue Tit who made is night time home in my camera nesting box still comes home every night at dusk. Don and I wondered why the sudden popularity of our garden then realised all our cats are elderly now and past chasing birds, do you think this could be the reason. Lovely video Bob, your love of nature shines through.

Re: Middle Spotted Woodpecker

These same pair of woodpeckers have appeared again on the trees.They're going like the clappers on these trees.Tearing away the bark making it fly all over the place.l won't have any tree left the way they're pecking at it.
What they do afterwards is quite amazing.They fly onto a concrete pylon only 30 meters away and start pecking at the pole.l thought to myself can't they tell the difference between a woody post to a concrete post.That was until l looked into my binoculars and saw many holes in the concrete posts lined under each other in a regimental fashion where they stuff the grubs for later use.
What a fascinating bird the woodpecker is.He can even create holes in a concrete post

Re: Middle Spotted Woodpecker

Thank you Bob, I really enjoyed that video, just so relaxing to sit and watch this, love to watch the birds busying about. I am taking an hour out tomorrow to undertake the RSPB big week-end birdwatch, all we have to do is sit and watch in our own gardens to see how many species visit the garden and send the details on line to the RSPB. I am just sat here now and can see from our kitchen window the little bluetits on the bird feeder and the blackbirds on the ground where I ensure they get a good feed too.

Well, I am not really found of those woodpeckers, they do a lot of damage on your houses, up here when it is only wooden houses, and to the electricpost, as they are of wood as well. They are proteced, but I would not at all to have them in my garden.

Re: Middle Spotted Woodpecker

Sorry Summertime.But your comment made me laugh.l can just picture you enjoying a lovely red wine in front of your fireplace in the living room when suddenly a noise of a rheumatic drill came from outside.And then no more walls but a pair of woodpeckers shouting.HEH,heh,eh,EE,hea, HEH,heh,eh,EE,hea,EE,E,E,E,aa.lt is the woody wood pecker show
