Greater Spotted Woodpecker Video by Brian Just

By Rob 2 years ago

"Here is the video of the adult Greater Spotted Woodpecker feeding the juvenile. Supposedly very shy birds, he (the adult) took to sitting atop the pergola squeaking/shouting loudly when there were no worms, getting rather impatient when the waiter service was slow. When he loads up with worms he looks rather like a TV aerial, visiting every few minutes to restock. Once up to fledgling stage he brought the 3 kids in to feed, and they are now at the independent stage of feeding themselves. The worms have fed a plethora of birds this year (the garden resembles something akin to Hitchcocks The Birds with the amount of adults and young there are), the Woodpeckers obviously, Blackbirds, Mistle Thrushes, Robins, Great Tits, Blue Tits (including the particularly handsome one in the photo!), House Sparrows and Chaffinches. They are all very cheeky in pursuit of the worms, especially the Robin and Great Tits, who flew into the kitchen to remind the waiter that they required food. Top prize however has to go to the Robin who staged a daring burglary the other day, climbing in the open hopper window to acquire his loot." - Brian Just
