  1. Looks similar to our Great Spotted Woodpecker Harold.
    Lovely capture.

  2. Awesome photo Harold. I would love to go to Algonquin Park one day… Woodpeckers are my absolute favorite group of birds

  3. this looks a lot like a woodpecker i have pecking on my live Hawthorn tree outside my window. the other pictures i see have a very definite black back. my woodie does not. the head is spotted and the back is sectioned between spotted and a striping. is this a young black backed? are they having a really hard year finding food that he would be hitting a live single tree? we are close to woods but he has chosen this single tree…..? can anyone help? there is really no white on him – or any red at this point. it is about the size of a robin.

  4. Hi Cathy:

    It depends where you live. It is a bird that has a northern range. You can see a range map here
