Wordless Wednesday: Downy Woodpecker

The bill on this little girl is half the length of her skull, so I am pretty sure she is a downy, not a hairy, woodpecker. If you think I'm wrong (which I have been, 100% of the time, so far), please holler! I like her pose here.

  1. Beautiful shot. I'll bet the clear blue skies are welcome. Was this in the "bird-tree?"

    I can't tell them apart unless they are sitting perfectly still, with their backs to me, and I have the book open to the correct page! lol

  2. How could you take this wonderful picture ! and so close ! I could never see the woodpecker who works here on trees I only hear him !

  3. Wow, I am amazed at your photograph! You are still at it!

  4. That is a great shot! Where I live, we have woodpeckers with red heads. I do not know their names though.

  5. Another great bird photo. I am afraid I can't help you identify it, though.

  6. Lovely shot!! I would think it is a Downy,also.
    Happy WW!

  7. That bird is fantastic. I love bird shots. Someday, I will get some. But for now, I have yours! Thanks.

  8. Wonderful clarity and true-to-life color. You feel three feet away. This took some steady viewfinder work and a good eye and camera. Great job, dear!
