The Great spotted woodpecker family

The Great spotted woodpecker family



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.
