Black woodpecker

On Friday I heard loud crying sounds from outside my balcony and decided to go out with my camera and take a look what's keeping that noise.
This is what was keeping the noise, a female black woodpecker. I have never been so close to one before and did not have an idea they were so big - it's bigger than a magpie!
