BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DOWNTOWN GAL (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

18 Comments

It’s rare to see anything other than sparrows, pigeons and the occasional robin in the downtown core so it was especially nice to see this solitary female Downy Woodpecker excavating the tree. As I walked away I hoped she’d find her way back to her mates but she did provide a welcome bit of nature on this city block.

  1. Such a pretty bird, but have you ever heard them when the young are screeching from the nest for more food? They could drive you bonkers. So loud and insistent and persistent.
