Green Woodpecker in the Garden

The European green woodpecker, Picus viridis, or Grünspecht in German, is a handsome bird, and we've been delighted to have one visit our garden.

The green woodpecker's favorite meal is ants, which is fine by us as our garden seems to become Ameisenstadt in the Summer!

Maybe it was keeping an eye out for weasels? This photograph has been causing a sensation on the Internet recently.
