Great spotted woodpecker

Great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major).

It is widespread throughout Europe and North Asia.

The upper body is black with a bluish luster.

The forehead is whitish, the crown and nape are bright red.

This picture is not very visible because it was almost all the time in profile…

Otherwise, the eaves of this house had broken it in several places 🙂

  • Do these birds meet in the place where you live?

    • No

  1. I read your title wrong, I thought you were saying it was great that you spotted a woodpecker. Then I read the piece and realized that the name of the bird. The Great Spotted Woodpecker.

    Awesome shot!
