Hi Annemarie, thanks. It's unusual for them to stay still long enough to have their photo taken!

Excellent portrait of this bird. When I see them, they are usually very high on a far-off dead tree.

Andrew Trundlewagon replied to Ronald Losure:

Hi Ronald, thanks. It's the same here; mostly they are more often heard than seen, or far up a tree trunk and too distant to photograph. We have a lot of fallen trees however, which attracts them to ground level. This was very lucky, however, as it came down about ten to fifteen feet from where I was walking and stayed still long enough for a few snapshots!
