|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi folks , today I have this image of a Hairy woodpecker excavating a nesting hole. if this fellow is successful this year the hole will home an average of four eggs. in later seasons the excavated tree will likely become a 'snag' (standing dead tree) and house another bird ( or critter )... though nesting holes can be damaging to trees the woodpecker repays trees in general with its feeding , the feeding of woodpeckers can make a large impact on relieving trees of insect infestations...|
thanks for having a look

What a wonderful close up of this Hairy Woodpecker. I see you caught him busy that's pretty impressive. Great focus and eye contact. It's about the time of the year they start making noise to impresse the girls. Keep them coming. Have a fine Alberta weekend.

Wonderful portrait of this male Hairy giving us a real up close and personal look at him. Every spring we get at least one or two that hammer on the light standard outside our house. I've been told that this is to attract a mate.
