Three-toed Woodpecker and more!!

Kjell Arne Pedersen found a Three-toed Woodpecker on Askøy a couple of weeks ago. Very rare in south-western Norway! It is quite territorial and drumming a lot. Saw it this morning with the help of Kjell Arne, as well as a pair of White-backed Woodpeckers, the male calling and drumming, the female on the nest. Spectaculair morning with these two species together!!
It was of course a new Vestland-species (formerly Hordaland), a total now of 260!
