This morning i was in luck. The past three mornings this easter, i've been chasing a couple of woodpeckers, but every time i started recording, they'd stop pecking for food.

This morning at around 8am i finally caught them, and not only for a few minutes. The wind was almost not present, and the sun was shining as if the summer had already come to the west coast of Denmark.

I've set my Zoom H2 on the 90 degree angle, to get a more concentrated recording of the woodpecker. I didn't dare come closer than i was, so there's a lot of birds in the foreground, but even though, i think the woodpecker gets through just fine.

    Beautiful recording. I'm looping it as a background sound for live streaming. The woodpeckers are wonderfully clear.
