ummm, excuse me...

a talented photographer took this picture of a female downy woodpecker.  i found it here.

i SAW a female downy woodpecker this afternoon, trying to peck a hole in my concrete street light pole.

she gave up pretty quickly.  exercise in futility.

what a pretty bird!

Ouch! A concrete pole? Trees seem painful already. lol

I want to thanks you for identifying the bird on my blog. I looked at what you found and it seems to be spot on...with the long legs, long beak and the cinnamon color on it's sides.

I would have sent you an email response but your comment was marked with a "no reply".

Thanks, again. :-)
