Considering that this is a very rare species and that there are only three pictures so far on TN, I have decided to post another image of the Grey-headed Woodpecker. The quality is even worse than yesterdays picture, but it is also a 70% crop. Anyway I'm quite happy about this meeting in one of my favourite places for taking pictures.



Da es sich bei dieser Aufnahme um eine recht seltene Spechtart handelt und überhaupt erst drei Bilder bei TN hochgeladen wurden, habe ich mich entschieden noch eine Version nachzulegen, obwohl diese qualitativ noch etwas schlechter als die gestrige ist. Es handelt sich dabei ebenfalls um einen 70% Bildausschnitt. Trotzdem bin ich sehr froh über das gestrige Treffen mit dem Grauspecht, der mir, an einem meiner Lieblingplätze zum fotografieren, vor die Kamera geflogen ist.

hello Helmut,
Very good photo presentation of this rare species on TN, TFS! Very interesting, in the last years, this Birds are nesting in our Parks in many place in Ro.
Have a nice afternoon!

The picture of this rare species of Woodpeckers may not meet up to your expectations in terms of technical qualities, Helmut. Still, it is a valuable contribution. In my opinion, it is a decent capture that displays the features of this bird very well.

Ciao Helmut, lovely bird in nice action, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Helmut,
I fully agree with Ram. It's indeed a very valuable contribution.

Hello Helmut,
Again a wonderful image. The colors, details and focus are great. This is a very rare species in county. I meet it only once. You take a nice image from a perfect POV.
Thanks for sharing!

Ciao Helmut. Voley compo for the bird in action. Good colours. Bit tender sharp MF.

Lieber Helmut,
Diese Spechtart kannte ich noch gar nicht. Habe wieder etwas dazugelernt :-)
Das Bild gefällt mir gar nicht schlecht. Guter Aufbau und man sieht das Federkleid des Vogels doch recht gut.
Herzlich dankt und grüsst
