Conifer Cone - Great Spotted Woodpecker
Conifer cone worked upon by Great Spotted Woodpecker Dendrocopos major. The cone scales have a jagged, ruffled appearance as they have been prised open sideways so that the seeds inside can be taken out. This has caused the rough, ruffled appearance of the cone. Found at Jasov, Slovakia, March 2009.
