Downy Woodpecker, Picoides pubescens:
Horse Cove; near Gurley, Alabama
A beautiful morning afforded me the opportunity to spend some time in my blind photographing birds in my back yard. This downy was busily feeding at my woodpecker feeder gathering food and taking it back to nestlings. I was able to grab this shot before it gathered food and headed back to the nest.
