Woodpecker feather

A feather of the great spotted woodpecker, based on a wonderful photo by Michael Maggs (via Wikipedia, under the creative commons licence). We were lucky enough to have a family of these birds visit the garden last year, and they still occasionally pop by for a takeaway at the feeders. I’ve not been lucky enough to find any of their discarded feathers however. Having seen Michael’s fantastic picture, I’ll definitely keep looking.
