BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

9 TO 5 (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

35 Comments

These downy woodpeckers were busy looking for insects in a stand of trees. You can see a trace of wood shavings on the male downy’s beak (below), he’d been working away for quite a while. The female soon joined in. These woodpeckers inhabit our woods year round, they are industrious birds, you often hear them before you see them.
