Walking into our backyard this morning, I once again heard the nearby sound of a woodpecker. This is a frequent sounds as of late. We have lots of Northern Flickers, but they usually don't drum this loudly. It sounded as if it was still a few blocks away. A short while later, Karyn comes in to tell me that there is a Downy Woodpecker on a pole about a block away. I grab the camera and walk outside. I get two pictures off before the Downy flies over to a pole in our yard. Here he is.
