A nice capture of the Northern Flicker Pat, the bokeh background allows him to stand out nice and clearly.
I would have liked to have seen him more on the right to allow him to look into more space for the composition, but I know how difficult this is to have all the elements together as you click.
Hats off - for this one! I like it very much. Looking at this photo really is pure joy. What a beautiful and somehow elegant bird! The picture allows to see all tiny details in the feathering and the blurred background makes this woodpecker wonderfully stand out. I must smile when reading that your street photography is mostly fauna. I think this is a real privilege ...
Greetings to you both from still summerly Germany - but the nights already are getting cooler and cooler ...

I like the dotted feathers. Apparently, you feed the birrds as the board is traih=ght and it's not a tre branch, a good oppportunity to watch the birds behaviour and try to tke them in picture

J'ai répondu: "Oui c'est Brava"
I have a similar wood pecker in my gallery with these dots and almost same colors. interesting how nature created two versions so similar em so far places. nice image, excellent quality.
