Through a naturalist’s eyes
"My Green Woodpeckers are tame enough for me to watch from the conservatory when they come down to the lawn to feed barely ten yards away. They are as pretty as a parrot. Indeed, with the patchwork of green, yellow and red, they outshine the local parrot, the Ring-necked Parakeet. The Green Woodpecker is more than decorative, because it is always worth stopping to watch whay it is doing."
