January 11th, 2013 – Avian Friday: Downy Woodpecker

Living in the Pacific Northwest, you have to take advantage of the few days during then winter months when we have light. Last week I only had an hour or so to spare during one of those days and questioned if it would be worth the effort for such a short outing. Fortunately, I managed to spot several species in such a short time period including this Downy Woodpecker.
