Downy Woodpecker at Veterans Park

I heard a loud woodpecker off in the distance, was trying to locate it when I saw this one above me. He was almost making no noise at all as he went to work. Even as I photographed him I could barely hear him. I just snapped away while he worked at getting those bugs.

The one above is just a little blurred around his head, he was moving fast, as woodpeckers do, and I had my camera set on 1/160 of a second. A little slow for birding, but it did ok. I did change the setting and continued to photograph him.





And then he was gone!

We have several woodpeckers and the sound is just wonderful. Great shots!
