My last week or so of birding has turned up a number of woodpeckers; Hairy, Downy, Northern Flickers, Red-breasted Sapsuckers but no Pileated Woodpeckers. Here are few images I have taken.
I had this Hairy Woodpecker land in a nearby bush at the Lake Cheam Wetlands and it seemed liked it was choking on something and eventually spit out something and gave a call and flew off. Hairy Woodpecker by Nick, on Flickr
Downy Woodpeckers have been plentiful, I have heard them at almost every place I have gone. While I stop to look at them I did not bother with any images recently so hear is one from a couple weeks back. Downy Woodpecker by Nick, on Flickr
Today the Northern Flickers were very active at the Aldergrove Regional Park, I think I saw or heard 6 as I wandered the park. This pair were chasing each other and I could hear another calling out while a Downy Woodpecker worked on creating a hole in a tree.
