Came across what I would guess to be a rare sight last week. Two Harrie Woodpeckers mating. The first shot is the female - she had been chirping which got my attention, and obviously the males too. Sorry about the poor resolution. These are full crops. Too far away unfortunately...cheers...Don

A rare opportunity, indeed, Thanks for posting it, but did you have to try to censor it with that vertical branch? :G

Very interesting! They are pretty good images for major crops.

Good work Don, and yes I would imagine that's a pretty rare thing to see. Congratutaions and thanks for sharing - don't worry about IQ and stuff like that. Anything rare or unusual, just post away. Cheers, Dan

Thanks guys. I wish I could have been closer, but that'd take a lot of tree climbing. You're right Dan about being a rare sight. This got a couple of guys I know, who are avid birders, pretty excited....cheers...Don
