Woodpecker Courtship


This evening I heard a noisy bird call and immediately notice two woodpecker flying and jumping one chasing the other. I quickly took my camera and managed to capture this few images, before they flew away.

Female (above) and male with red skull cap.

This female look like ‘hiding’ from her mate by clutching tightly to the branch. Actually she was knocking her bill against the tree bark.
Woodpecker uses drumming as the primary source for attracting and communicating with potential mates
