Camera Critters #147

It’s always nice to see a new bird in my yard…and my Camera Critter for this week, is just that…a new yard bird.

It’s not that Downy Woodpeckers are rare here, it is just they normally don’t stop in my yard and give me time to photograph them.

But this guy did  8v)

Nice job of taking advantage of the opportunity he gave you here! I cannot wait till our woodpeckers come back here in the coming weeks!

great photo!

i'm personally not too fond of woodpeckers around my house (in particular a certain pileated guy) .. as there is one particular guy that returns every spring to peck his brains out on my chimney cap. drives us all crazy!

(but he is pretty ... )
