Green woodpeckers in the garden

We have a family of green woodpeckers in the garden who love to feed on the ants in the lawn. They often make quite large holes in their search for food but they are welcome to eat as many as they can as I don't really want the ants invading the house.  The youngsters are slowly learning to copy their parents but this one has a habit of sitting in the sycamore tree and squawking for attention! On a rainy morning he sat there looking so sorry for himself sheltering under the leaves I just had to draw him alongside a feather I found on the drive.
