Woodpeckers

  1. Recovering from a stinking cold I was photographing out of my window at my bird feeder. I had filled the log with my own style peanut butter/fat/seed mixture and it wasn't long before these showed up. The first is a Red-bellied Woodpecker, the second is Downy Woodpecker.

    One of my favorites during a trip to Costa Rica last year (2017)

    For those who enjoy bird photography, Costa Rica is an excellent destination since it is located in a narrow area connecting North and South America, a lot of migrating birds need to fly through the land in that narrow area. Hence its concentration of birds.

    There are also diverse areas inside Costa Rica. The lowland on the Caribbean side is very tropical and you can find a lot of parrots, etc. The cloud forests have their own species. I found those acorn woodpeckers in the highlands in Costa Rica, but we have them here in California also.

    Last year we went with a photography group that visited various regions.

  11. All these Pileated Woodpeckers. I’m jealous, I’ve seen them in the yard twice in 18 years. I’d love to get a nice picture of one.

    If you blow up a small image to extremes, couldn't you get a 'Pixellated' woodpecker ?




    Sorry

    This is another one of my favorite woodpecker images, captured in July 2016, in Big Sur on the Central California Coast.
