[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A pair of Syrian woodpeckers (Dendrocopos syriacus) playing hide and seek around the tree trunk.

PS: initially i identified the species wrongly as being Dendrocopos major. However with this species the collar reaches the back of the neck, which is not true for the birds in the picture.

Beautiful activity here Ivan. What a pleasure to view! I thinkthey are contemplating where to start working on theior new nest. Well done and so well presented in great colours, quality and composition.

A very natural and casual picture. We hardly see these birds here in Spain. Un saludo.
