This cute Downey Woodpecker, a hen, was spotted recently pecking on the metal and plastic yard lamp in a neighbor’s front yard. Unfortunately and innocently, woodpeckers love pecking on hollow man-made objects as they enjoy the booming loud noise their drumming produces. This bird circled the globe of the lamp.
This little gal is new to the neighborhood and is likely a migratory bird from up North. It is no secret that I adore woodpeckers of all types; so, welcome little cutie to the neighborhood. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
