STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DOWNY WOODPECKER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

29 Comments


I usually see downy woodpeckers excavating tree trunks, so it’s nice to photograph one perched on a branch for a change. This male stuck around for a few minutes, so I had more opportunity than usual to take some shots. The light was excellent and the weather was fine (sunny days are returning). All and all a wonderful return to spring and picture taking!
