A Downy Woodpecker Hanging Out At The Celery Bog
While I was watching the red-shouldered hawk from yesterday’s post this downy woodpecker was working its way around me. I love it when you can sit in one spot with multiple birds working the area around you. When I made the photo above I thought that I had made something good. It would get better though.
A Nice Pose
This might be the classic woodpecker pose. They are ready to move, but trying to figure out where to go. I love that even though the woodpecker was low to the ground that I was even lower. That way the beautiful blue sky could be my background. When you have a nice sky in the winter you have to use it. There are too many gray skies not too.
Woodpeckers Have A Tongue?
I guess that I had never thought about a woodpecker having a tongue until I saw it in this photo. I guess it makes getting into the holes a little easier. I like capturing details that I have not seen before.
