The Determined Woodpecker

I was out collecting the millions of sticks that seem to have rained down on out yard and made it impossible to mow the lawn the other day when I saw this little fellow peckpeckpecking an old birch tree. Of course I ran inside and grabbed my camera... half an hour and 385 photos later, here are the results.


I got right up close to him, and he still didn't budge from his tree. He was very determined!

Love the bokeh effect of the trees!
Check out the spray of wood that little bird ripped from the tree... 
Beautiful foliage!

  1. That sounds like a serious woodpecker! Oh, and was that blue background part of your Winter theme? I came on earlier and the background was blue with a design on it....

  2. He is gorgeous! Downy woodpeckers are one of my favorite birds because even where I live in a city, they come visit my backyard. Stunning photos!
