Tiny Woodpecker

I'm seeing a lot of woodpeckers lately and they are not shy.  This little Downy Woodpecker was a delight.

Downy Woodpecker male

He clearly saw me with my camera, but chose to ignore my presence, much like the Pileated woodpecker in my last post.

Choosing to ignore me

 He even came closer, by landing just above me a couple of times.  

Going about his business

That's why birding in the spring can be so much fun.

Where to next

Right above me
The birds are so busy selecting their mates and seeking sustenance that they are more visible and tolerant of the attentions of humans on occasion.



  1. Downy's are such lovely woodpeckers!
