The view from my perch on the mountain

Downy Woodpecker

I was out in the backyard, standing on the picnic table when this little critter, a female Downy Woodpecker flew over and landed on a branch about 10 feet away!

I know what you’re thinking…….why was I standing on top of the picnic table in the first place, right? You’ll have to go here to find out.

  5. You and that table are going to get you in big trouble yet. It seems like every time I read a post, you’re standing on that table! Better hope the BOSS doesn’t catch you! Haha. Fantastic Downy pics. One of my favorite birds. So pretty. Congrats on the Chickadee residents as well!
