Downy Woodpecker, Picoides pubescens
Horse Cove; Gurley, Alabama
I was shooting from a blind this evening but for some reason there was little activity. The only thing to show up was a nuthatch and this male Downy Woodpecker. Though I sat for an hour with nothing to shoot I was really happy when this little guy showed up, and I am really excited with the results of the shoot.
