Meet Downy

It was very wet in our back yard this week (see below) and I didn’t get out to take any pictures. But in between the rain showers I was able to get a picture of one the many friends that visit our back yard from time to time.

Here is a female Downy Woodpecker. She and her mate stop by to sample the fine cuisine at our suet feeder quite often, especially during the spring. It’s hard to get a good picture of them because they don’t stand still for very long. We also see Hairy Woodpeckers which are a little larger and have a longer bill. I’ll try to get a picture of one the next time they stop by.

Cheers – DJD

Rain for the week: 5.5 in. Year to date: 31.75 in.
