Greater Spotted Woodpeckers

Greater Spotted Woodpeckers
Falsgrave Park, Scarborough
22nd and 23 May 2012

Classic views of a male Woodpecker feeding it's young.

At the present time the male seems to be feeding the young on his own, along with, in the last two days, fighting off another male Woodpecker. The female does not seem to be about at the moment and the general thought is that the other male may have something to do with the situation.

Therefore the male, with the growing family, is well over worked and still has to fight for his territory.
