Downey Woodpecker

29 Oct

It’s been a while since I’ve seen one of the little downey woodpeckers.

It’s always fun to see them.  I need to get my winter bird feeders out.

    What a great shot! I tried all summer to capture a woodpecker on my camera, but it evaded me. I think they’re the shyest birds when it comes to having photographs done.

      I was surprised that this one stayed while I was so close.

    Teresa…Are you sure that is not our Mr. Downey who has gotten lost and cannot find his way back to Virginia…hahahaha. Ours have not shown their faces, yet, But we are waiting patiently. This is a great capture of one of my favorite fine feathered friends.

    What a darling little woodpecker. We have one (a larger type of wookpecker) that visits a telephone pole next door every year but my zoom isn’t strong enough to capture it.

      I can’t believe how close this one let me get. I usually have to wait until winter when they are by my deck eating.

    I love those little guys, but never can get a good picture! You’re very good.

    • Teresa October 29, 2013 at 9:56 pm #

      I was really surprised that it didn’t fly away.

      They are one of my favorites.

    Lovely photo! Woodpeckers are beautiful birds, but very shy.

    • Teresa October 30, 2013 at 7:46 am #

      The downeys are the only ones that are friendly around here. I was still surprised at how close I got.

    Mine have not yet returned… maybe they are waiting for something better than sunflower seeds? Lovely capture Teresa.

    • Teresa October 30, 2013 at 7:47 am #

      I haven’t even changed out the summer finch food for the winter seeds. This one was out in the Back Forty.

    • Teresa October 31, 2013 at 7:54 am #

      I’m still in summer finch feeder mode. I did at least get the hummingbird feeder down and cleaned out . 🙂
