Downy Woodpeckers

A pair of Downy woodpeckers decided to move into our near-dead birch tree. Right in our front yard…and we can watch them through the front windows. It has been an exciting 3 days watching the hole in the tree get deeper and bigger!

In no particular order some shots I have captured of these beautiful birds in action:

the female taking a break:

  1. Your link up seems to have worked fine – its just that I am so far behind in replying to comments its not funny! Woodpeckers are one of my favourite birds, but we don’t have any in Australia. Used to see then regularly in the UK.
