Green woodpeckers are very skittish birds I find. Any sudden movement and, with a loud yaffle, they’re off. Luckily, with this bird, I was partially hidden by trees. Although it heard me coming and flitted up from the ground where it had been poking about for ants, at least it didn’t fly far so I was able to focus my shot between the branches and twigs.
