Eating Ants for me.

We sometimes get Green Woodpeckers in the garden - one came this morning.

As I live, I learn. First time I hear about a green woodpecker.

They are quite large birds, Mike and they are a distinctive colour with a red patch on the head. They eat ants!!! Hooray!!

I had to take the photo out of the kitchen window - I'm surprised it came out at all!

I'm jealous. I see lots of these in the local fields and woods and lots of people I know get them in their gardens but I've never seen one in mine and I've lived here for about 30 years.

I love seeing them! They are shy birds but very welcome. :-)

Great visitor. A nice looking bird. I had never heard of a green woodpecker either. I could take any that eats ants soon. :-)

Definitely - I keep getting bitten and they make nests in the borders.
