This woodpecker chick was hiding on the ground in a ditch when I have found it.
It was probably a young Syrian woodpecker (Dendrocopos syriacus), but I am not entirely certain.
It seemed to be unable to fly and there was a large number of domestic cats in the area. I did not quite want to handle it but I did not feel right just leaving it there either. Fortunately I have managed to get it to perch on a stick long enough to lift it to a nearby tree. The young woodpecker then quickly climbed up and disappeared in the crown of the tree.
