Grey-headed, Grey-faced

I went up into the Buda Hills for an hour of so this afternnon, to show my mate Bence a couple of Grey-headed (aka Grey-faced) Woodpecker territories. Our spring bird guiding season will soon be upon us and we need to check things out before our guests arrive! Still a bit of snow up there, and a cold wind, just 15-20 minutes up from the Danube. But we soon located a Grey-headed and later a calling and drumming Black Woodpecker. A lot of excavating has been going on, too... All in all, not bad for a casual look around!
