Downy Woodpecker


This male Downy Woodpeckerkept us company during what was perhaps, but probably not, the final snow of the long winter season last week. He will show up every now and again over the summer months but his visits become less frequent as the insects spring to life and the feeding is good.

  1. It looks like I will have to do some research! I didn’t know there was a way to tell the male from the female. I am somewhat of a newbie birder. I have done a lot of bird photography, but have kind of morphed into a birder, after giving my son, my SLR and tele! I replaced it with a Sony Alpha600, with their kit lens.
