Downy Woodpecker Calling and Drumming for Mate



Male Downy Woodpecker Calling and Drumming for Mate - my best encounter yet with these elusive little woodpeckers.

This male has picked this high perch with just the right wood to amplify his drumming - he is defending his breeding territory and courting a female.
