Saturday Critters ~ 206 ~

Last week I shared many of my yard birds, but did not include a picture of the 
Downey Woodpecker.
Both males and females hang around the feeders...
neither are camera shy.
Here are some pictures of the male, he quite likes having his picture taken.


He lands here first...


then shows off his pretty red feathers.


Next he comes in closer to the window...

and catches the pretty light.

A wink...

then a stare down...

and this is the last one I took, right before he took off.

Sharing today with

  22. Oh, this male Downey Woodpecker is a beauty. You got some amazing shots. I love the strips and the lovely colors on this one. What is not surprising at all is that you captured it's personality. You are such an expert at that.
    Blessings and hugs dear friend!
