Last Tuesday morning, the weather was drab and this is probably why the birds were more active than when it is warm and sunny, in which case they remain more readily in the woods.

La famille Pic épeiche: Le temps sombre limite pluie mardi matin a probablement favoriser l’activité des pics: en cas de chaleur et de grand soleil ils restent plus volontiers à l’ombre dans le sous-bois.

Nikon D500 + 200/500 mm

Si maman était présente – If mom was around
The 2 youngsters were mostly fed bythe male – c’est le mâle qui faisait le plus gros du travail de nourrissage
Papa et fiston – Father and son
Les 2 jeunes en compétition; la calotte rouge sur le dessus de la tête disparaitra chez la Femelle et migrera à l’arrière de la tête chez le mâle à maturité – The 2 young competing; on reaching adulthood the red cap on top of the head will disappear in the female and migrate at the back of the head in the male.

Et….. le choc des mini titans!!! – Clash of mini titans!!!

Fooling around… – Très joueur…
