|GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER |
IN THE WORKSHOP I POST THE BIRDS IN FLIGHT.
The great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) is a medium-sized woodpecker with pied black and white plumage and a red patch on the lower belly. Males and young birds also have red markings on the neck or head. This species is found across Eurasia and parts of North Africa. Across most of its range it is resident, but in the north some will migrate if the conifer cone crop fails.
he adult great spotted woodpecker is 20–24 cm long, weighs 70–98 g and has a 34–39 cm wingspan. The upperparts are glossy blue-black, with white on the sides of the face and neck. Black lines run from the shoulder to the nape, the base of the bill and about halfway across the breast.
