Another bird that I haven't really photographed for awhile. I was also having some issues with my off-camera flash setup recently, so I only took maybe a few shots of this Woodpecker before it flew off, but I managed to resolve the problem a few days later. The flash is in business!
Below are shots also taken in 2011 at Hawrelak park.

Again, I was hoping to find some Boreal Chickadees, but nothing. Found a few of these Redpolls along the trail. I also saw some Crossbills, but they were a bit high for any photography. I tried to look for the pair of GHO I found on Sunday, but they were not there.
Have a great weekend. Happy holidays!
