About This Image

A Red Bellied Woodpecker, perched on a power mast.

This was a hand held shot 300mm zoom, taken from a parking lot where we stayed in Key Largo.

This little chap took great delight in 'hammering' on the metal part of the mast every morning, at exactly 7.04am. A great wake-up call??

Thank you Ikka and Chriss for looking and commenting on my 'alarm call'! Your thoughts are always appreciated. I know he didn't wake you Chriss...maybe it was the other way round? :)

Great shot Jas, just like to say he never woke me up because I was up before him..

Thanks for all the 'cool' comments; Carol, Alandra, Talsi and Whittler. I think this woodpecker was marking territory Alandra but he was a great alarm. Great comment Whittler - really made me smile :)

great shot, Jas. Fiona has told me that certain birds hammer away on her roof too, on the metal surrounding the chimney etc, making a loud noise : )
