Black Woodpecker foraging site

Old tree stump hacked open in typical fashion by Black Woodpecker Dryocopus martius. Note the oval hole (this one 12cm high and 5cm wide) and large woodchips (some 6cm long), scattered around. In Europe this kind of work is only done by Black Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker on the continent. Zempén Hills, Hungary, Gerard Gorman.
