HAIRY WOODPECKER FEMALE - PIC CHEVELU FEMELLE

The Hairy Woodpecker (Picoides villosus) is a medium-sized woodpecker

Habitat
Their breeding habitat is forested areas with large trees across most of North America to Central America. They nest in a tree cavity, excavated by the nesting pair

Description
Adults are mainly black on the upper parts and wings, with a white back, throat and belly and white spotting on the wings. There is a white bar above and below the eye. They have a black tail with white outer feathers. Adult males have a red patch on the back of the head.

It is virtually identical in plumage pattern and coloration to the much smaller Downy Woodpecker, which also has a shorter bill relative to the size of its head. These two species are not at all closely related, however, and are to be separated in different genera (Weibel & Moore, 2005; Moore et al., 2006). Their outward similarity is a spectacular example of convergent evolution. As to why this convergence has evolved, only tentative hypotheses have been advanced; it is interesting to note in any case that due to the considerable size difference, ecological competition between the two species is rather slight.

These birds are mostly permanent residents. Birds in the extreme north may migrate further south; birds in mountainous areas may move to lower elevations.

These birds forage on trees, often turning over bark or excavating to uncover insects. They mainly eat insects, also fruits, berries and nuts, sometimes tree sap.

I once spent the better part of a weekend trying (in vain) to get one decent shot of a hairy woodpecker. So I envy your capture. You have maintained good detail and a nice shallow DOF too.

Hello Claude
What a marvellous capture of this lovely woodpecker!! She is so cute! For her feathers and the snow on the tip of the trunk it looks rather cold round there. Magnificent sharp details and great DOF and composition.
Thank you very much for sharing!
Greetings
Maite

Isn't she a cute one?! And she picked a good sized small trunk of branch to alight. Very sharp details in this aviary with the B&W's having wonderful patterns. I see it is a winter bird as well, you having taken it in Feb of this year. A nice choice if ASA/ISO so you wold not have anything of noise. Well done.

Hi Claude.
What a cute and perfect reproduced bird. I like the pictured scene, impressive vertical cropping so much. Excellent, precise exposure, perfect sharpness and wonderful feathers. DOF is so impressive and supplements the main subject excellently. My best wishes and compliments.

I can barely creep up on a brave little Robin let alone a Woodpecker! It is surely a great skill to have...

Hi Claude,
Splendid shot! Wonderful bird!
Excellent definition, pretty composition.
Very good POV and details.
Congratulations for the beautiful work!
Best regards,
Jos Roberto

Hi Claude,
Nice job on the exposure and details. Great POV, DOF, and closeup comp..I like the bit of snow that tops it's roost, and the near OOF branch doesn't distract at all, blending in with the Bg colors.
Well done,
Howard

Hello Claude, I do like this shot of the Woodpecker, you did very well to get such fine detail on the plumage as these guys are usually way up high in the trees. Very nice pov and good light and colour, crisp and sharp. Great work.
