Downy woodpecker

Dryobates pubescens

Description:

The downy woodpeckers often visit my feeders, usually arriving one at a time. So it was unusual to see two arrive in the yard together and then even more surprising when they engaged in a mating session in one of the crepe myrtle trees. It's not easy to see because of the twigs in the way but it was a unique experience to see them together.

Habitat:

My yard
