    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.

    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!
