Beautiful Woodpecker

Just once, he came and pecked on this half-dead tree of mine. But oh boy, I was thrilled to see beyond words. I did a search on Google, and this is known as downy woodpecker.

Beautiful Woodpecker

He was a beautiful bird, very busy working on his pecking and jumping from here to there. I tried to snap as fast as I can; worry that he would fly away when he spotted me.

Once he spotted me, he was gone and I haven't seen coming back! This was the best year so far in my backyard. I don't know if it is because I feed the bird, or is it the dead tree, the weather, or a combination of all things. I am just glad they came.

  1. perhaps a combination of all things..or it must be because nature loves you in return :-)

  2. A tree doctor has just visited your backyard.

  3. i can feel the joy, wish woodpecker would visit us too and would let me take pictures like you did. he is handsome.

  4. Lucky you. I've got the peacocks here in the trees but they arrive too late in the evening to get good pictures and they make the most horrible cries. These are beautiful shots.

  5. Wow! You got some beautiful shots of the little Downy in action!

  6. The woodpecker you caught great .... very nice ...
    Love greetings, Karin

  7. Beautiful shots of this little downy. Lovely post!

  8. Jest śliczny i lubię usłyszeć w lesie ich stukanie w drzewo. Pozdrawiam.
    It is pretty and I like to hear them in the woods tapping trees. Yours.

  9. Oh! Wow! ~ Fantastic shots of a beautiful woodpecker ~ Awesome! ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  10. I too love seeing the woodpeckers, I have seen the Downy, the Hairy and the Red Bellied Woodpeckers at my feeders. They visit my yard frequently. I have suet feeders and the Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers often visit them.
    The Hairy Woodpecker, looks very much like the Downy Woodpecker. The only difference is their size and bill, Downy is the smaller one and has black spots down its tail.

  11. I love the Downy woodies, they are cute! Great shots.

  12. Beautiful picture showing a woodpecker :)
