Another Diversion.

Another diversion from what the blog is really supposed to be about, but I thought some images of Sapsuckers and a Woodpecker from across the Atlantic would go to keep the blog ticking over and a change from our UK species. The two images above are of the male (left) and female Red - naped Sapsucker and was taken in Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada.
This is the Red - breasted Sapsucker and was taken on Mount Seymour, North Vancouver, Canada.

And an excellent portrait of a female Downy Woodpecker the smallest Woodpecker in North America which breeds in mainly deciduous forested areas in North to Central America.
The photographs are credited to Paul Baker who has given me permission to use them on Bird2blog for which I am most grateful......Thanks Paul.
