Superb captures. Did you use a hide to get them or were you lucky?

Thank you. There was no blind necessary here. We're fortunate that about fifty feet from our back door, there's a dead small palm tree that's got more holes in it than dubya's service record. It's currently home to the Redbellied pair seen above as well as a Screech Owl and some pesky European Starlings.

I was upset to find a broken egg in the grass nearby on Sunday afternoon (very pale blue, about an inch and a little in length). Of them all, I especially hope the owl's nest wasn't looted.

Sincere thanks to all who've taken time to comment.

Wow, that really is fortunate. I look forward to seeing more pictures if you have the time. I've yet to capture a Woodpecker myself, but seeing your pictures makes me more determined.
Once again, excellent work.

Excellent shots Keirin! Which camera and lens did you use for these?

Thank you. These were all taken with a D200 with a 300 f/4 attached. Even with the relatively close working range I had, they've all been cropped to some extent or another.

Once again, sincere thanks to everyone for your kind remarks!
