Juvenile Downy Woodpecker

Downy Woodpecker-Juvenile

There are a lot of woodpeckers in my yard this year. Dad woodpecker brought his three young ones to eat at the suet feeder last week. This little one was nice enough to pose for a picture.

You can tell this is a juvenile by the red cap on the top of the head. Adult males have a red patch on the back of the head and females have no red.

More Wordless Wednesday.
