Downy Woodpecker, male.

This male Downy Woodpecker is doing the woodpecker thing. At this angle you can see the red patch at the back of his head. The female lacks this ornamentation. JK

  1. Joe, This is the woodpecker that I really liked. I think I’ve seen one similiar to it in my back yard.

  2. Hi Donna. These are amongst the most common of the woodpeckers, especially near human habitation. JK
