Nice! That's the guy that was at Twig Forest last week. His arms must be really tired....

...tired indeed, since he makes a daily appearance at my feeder. What a commute!

This was taken with The Hermit's new Kodak Z740 with 10x optical zoom. I must admit, it sure beats the hell out of my 4x optical zoom. I'll have to use it for feeder photos from now on.

Yep, that little feller's been here too, but I haven't seen him in awhile, wondered where he was.

Nice shot!

Deb said...

He really gets around!

I should add, my 4 year old, Mr. Attitude, can already identify a downy woodpecker. He proudly annouces to me when this one shows up.

I can't remember--what's the difference between the downy and the hairy woodpecker? Great close up shot, Deb.

Great Shot!

We have two pair who have stayed year around. I love their daily visits.

What a cute little downy woodpecker you have there. They've been showing up at our feeder too. They seem braver than the other birds, staying much longer even when we open the door and go outside.
