Artist's Description

The Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens) is a species of woodpecker, the smallest in North America. They are mainly black on the upperparts and wings, with a white back, throat and belly and white spotting on the wings. There is a white bar above the eye and one below. They have a black tail with white outer feathers barred with black. Adult males have a red patch on the back of the head whereas juvenile birds display a red cap. Woodpeckers are very territorial, so I played a downy call from my bird call CD. This male arrived quite quickly to try to rumble with the would-be intruder. Of course, his search was futile, but I got many great photo ops as a result. I took this in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and the 70-300mm zoom lens.
