Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Woodpecker’s Delight

Recently I observed a woodpecker preoccupied with drilling holes into the old tree stump that has served as a stand for our wash basket. It did not notice me with my movie camera. So I managed to get as close as five metres away from this colourful bird. The result is this short video. Enjoy.

  2. That’s a nice up-close video! Ours look a lot like that. They’re fun to watch and don’t seem to bothered much by my presence. To me, he was a little bigger than I expected. It looks like you got a little closer than I’ve been able to (so far). Thanks for sharing!
