    Three years ago, a regular visitor to our bird tables, a Greater Spotted Woodpecker came along with one of her young. A year later she did exactly the same thing.

    And sure enough, almost to the day, she brings along one of this years’ youngsters to show them the ropes, and on this picture, how to eat horizontally!

    I remember you posting a pic of it last year. :D

    They are a bit camera shy but fortunately those pictures were taken through the kitchen window.
