Saturday Critters – The woodpecker

Woodpeckers are small and medium-sized birds.

They have a very lively and contrasting feather color. In our country live 8 species of hammers. The most common is the garden woodpecker(Dendrocopos syriacus). It is so called because it is characteristic of orchards, parks and gardens.

It is a sedentary bird, meaning it stays here all year. Males and females are not very different. In general, the feathering of this bird is a combination of white, black and red, except that in the male there is also a red spot on the back of the head.

I have taken these  pictures in Chindia Park!
