Woodpecker, blackbird on balcony


This is a video of a great spotted woodpecker making a drumming sound. Not, like usually, on a tree, but on a TV antenna.

This afternoon, a male great spotted woodpecker.

It was eating the grease on the top of the nest box above the balcony.

Then, it flew to the tree behind the balcony. Then, it flew away.

Soon, two wood pigeons in the tree. On a roof behind the tree, two magpies.

Later, a female blackbird on the balcony, eating seeds from a bowl. While a male blackbird sat in the tree.

In the morning, there had been chaffinches in the tree.

And, of course, many great tits and blue tits at the feeders.

  1. Yesterday I saw the largest group of Crows ever. They were all exercised about something. I was driving the auto and could not see what they were excited about. I searched the tree tops for an Owl but saw nothing. Then, I was past the scene and missed what was sure to be one of those lifetime experiences. Too bad there was so much traffic behind me.
    We once lived in a house on top of a mountain. Across the street was a house with a large tin protective cover over the chimney. A large woodpecker would often come by and drum on the tin cover. After about five minutes he would give up. I believe he was looking for a mate. I bet the sounds, to him, were the words “Come here my dear. Look at the big bunch of grubs I can dig out of this tree. Join me for a feast – – – my dear.”
