Woodpecker

Woodpecker

Also spotted on our walk was this cool woodpecker. I normally don't take my camera with me when we go walking but I'm glad I did this time. I was busy looking for the cardinal I heard but Mark spotted this little guy. He looks a little different from the woodpecker we normally spot in our back yard. I enjoyed watching him busily check out different trees.

Bravo for this close up with nice details on his feathers. When I hear and see a woodpecker at work, I always feel sorry for the tree.

It is a Downy Woodpecker and looks like a female.

Looks like a Downy.

(I see someone else said this, yay me.)

I hope to get some bird shots with my new camera too.
