Camera Critters #199

A little more than a year ago, I walked out my door to take Lacy for a walk.  As I did, I noticed some movement in the tree next door.

Grabbing my camera, I followed this Downy Woodpecker as he moved up and down the tree.

I really like these birds! They are very pretty and always so busy.

You were lucky - whenever I see on of these, there is usually too many branches in the way or he keeps going higher and higher!

every spring, I am attacked by a pileated woodpecker that spends his mornings (every day for a couple of weeks) pecking on my chimney cap on the roof. drives me and the dogs crazy. i would, however, worry if he didn't come back next year.

We've got a pair of Downy's at our feeders. They're fun to watch.

Great shot! We have several that live on our property and they are so entertaining to watch!

we don't have woodpeckers here so it is a joy to see such shots
