Tap Tap Woodpecker
The painting shows it's fun to watch, woodpeckers provide a key ecosystem service that is essential for many waterfowl, songbirds, birds of prey, and even other woodpecker species. Woodpeckers are what is known as “primary” cavity nesters. Meaning, they excavate nesting cavities from scratch.

I love the contrast. The soft pastel background with the solid tree trunk and the colourful bird. Made feel nostalgic. Such a beautiful reminder of the time I used to watch a Coppersmith tap tap outside my window on a wild fig tree.
