Downy Woodpecker

Downey Woodpecker1549I used to think of woodpeckers as timid, solitary birds that weren’t very interesting to watch. I was wrong. I give you the Downy Woodpecker. This little gal was climbing around upside down on these twigs as I approached. I got to within ten feet of her and watched as she sipped sweet, delicious tree sap from the underneath side of the tiny limbs.
