Wild Bird Wednesday.

I skogkanten utenfor huset i dag kom det plutselig flygende en grønn fugl og satte seg på en trestamme rett foran meg. Det var en fugl jeg ikke har sett her tidligere, men jeg forsto med en gang at det var en slags spett.
Jeg listet meg inn etter kameraet så stille jeg bare kunne. 


This morning I noticed a green bird sitting on a tree trunk in the forest edge outside our house. It was a bird I haven't seen here before, but I recognized it as some kind of woodpecker.
I went inside to get my camera as quietly as I could.


Da jeg kom ut igjen hadde fuglen satt seg til høyere opp i treet, og i tillegg i skygge, så bildene ble ikke helt bra. Men det var morsomt å få bilder av den likevel :) 


When I got back outside the bird had moved higher up in the tree, now placed in shade, so the photos did not turn out as good as I hadd hoped. Though I was happy to get some photos of it anyway :) 


Etter litt googling og sammenlikning av bilder av grønnspett og gråspett antar jeg at det er en grønnspett vi har hatt besøk av.
Grønnspetten finnes over hele Europa og deler av Asia, og den lever av maur.


After a little googling and comparing of photos of European green woodpecker and Grey-headed woodpecker I think it is the Green woodpecker that came by.
The European green woodpecker lives in most parts of Europe and in some parts of Asia. Its main food is ants.


Vi har tidligere hørt noe vi har trodd har vært grønnspett-sang i skogen, uten å ha sett fugl. Muligens er det denne karen vi har hørt.


We have heard something we have believed to be the song of the Green woodpecker in the woods earlier, but never seen the bird. It just might be this fellow we have heard.


Under er litt mer forstørrede og lysnede bilder .
Vakker fugl :) 


Below are two more photos enlarged and a little lighter.
A beautiful bird :)

It's a beautiful bird and you did well with your captures. There is some similarity to the Northern Flickers we have here in Vancouver, but then again, the similarity may just be the features found in all woodpeckers :)

I love spotting new birds, and this woodpecker is really pretty! I thought it looked very much like our Flickers here too. Great that you were able to get him in a photo at all ;) Wendy

Beautiful looking woodpecker.

Anne said...

I thought it was some kind of woodpecker! They are beautiful birds and your photos are beautiful too Hilde.

As it has a red cap on its head, it is probably the lesser spotted woodpecker rather than the green. I love woodpeckers as long as they are not hammering trees too early in the morning!

En vacker fågel! Tur att den satt kvar medan du hämtade kameran.

Vilken fin fågel! Sådana har vi nog inte här, jag brukar bara se de "vanliga" hackspettarna, de som är svarta, vita och röda. Sådana har vi gott om.
Hoppas du haft en riktigt fin sommar! :) Ha det fint :)

En helt uvanlig hverdag said...

Så fine bilder. Vakker fugl.

Ha en fin dag.
Klem

You lucky! Wonderfull pictures.
Last winter we had a spotted woodpecker in our garden, but sadly I´ve got no pictures.

Great shots of a lovely little fellow!!! I can hear woodpeckers "pecking" at tree trunks in the woods here, but they are usually high up and it's hard to see them...

Fabelaktig bildeserie!
Så heldig du er som fikk møte denne vakre fuglen.
Imponerende hvordan du beholdt roen, og derfor ble belønnet med så tydelige bilder.
Den vil jeg så gjerne treffe på.
Klem;)

Great pictures of the green woodpecker. I was fortunate to catch a redheaded woodpecker here in Arkansas a few weeks ago in my friend's back yard. I had never seen one before and was happy to have my camera!

Eva said...

For en vakker fugl du hadde besøk av.. Ja, det er så gøy når de er så nære at man kan fange det med linsa..

Ha en fin, fin kveld... Klem
