Sweet little Downy Woodpecker half hidden in the Spanish moss. Downies are the smallest woodpeckers in North America.
I saw a pair here on busy South Sewall’s Point Road, between Palmetto and Emarita. This one’s the male, with the red patch on his head.
They were noisy and active – at a time of day (near noon) on a bright, humid day when I didn’t expect to see many, or any, birds.
Hooray, Downy! My first Florida sighting of one of my faithful old friends from New Hampshire.
