Hairy Woodpecker

Hairy Woodpecker (Correction, Downy Woodpecker)

The Woodpecker was almost stationary for some time. Ellen (PassingByPhoto.com) was following him first, as usual.

Finally I couldn’t stand it and had to shoot a few too.

These were taken about 2 weeks ago, near the local Great Blue rookery. We’ve been busy and I tend to pay more attention to the bigger critters pushing these images back a bit.

Charleston, South Carolina.

Note; probably wrong ID here. Downy seems more likely... in hindsight of course.

    1. I was lazy with my ID… corrected the article when I realized it. Thanks. We have been out pretty steady. We move around between down to Merrett and up to our local Lowcountry, next the delta. Can’t shoot and write at the same time LOL

  1. Downy 👍😊 Another ID help between the two is the black dots along the tail at perch which the Hairy doesn’t have. I’ve had to sharpen my skills on these two to keep me straight. 😉
