Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


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!

  1. By coincidence a Downey visited my feeder today too.

  2. I love the woodpeckers too, all of them! Great shots! Happy Thursday, have a great weekend ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! I am hoping to see a lot more songbirds here on my street. I am already noticing a few Palm Warblers have arrived. I hope to get a few snapshots taken of the new arrivals. Have a super day today and a great day tomorrow, too!

  3. makes me laugh. 🙂
