Downy Woodpecker

28 04 2008

While out at Reifel with the scouts on the 20th I also saw this downy woodpecker building his home.  I decided to make a post just for him because it was the first time I have seen one and got such a good photo of one.  I was pretty excited when I got home and found that focus and lighting worked just RIGHT for this little fellow:

Downy Woodpecker building a home

His full sized photo can be seen here.

He was probably no more than 6m from me!  Just working away and seeming not bothered by the 50 kids that stopped to watch him.
