Birds are always sitting near the top of our Walnut Tree. Sometimes I’m not sure what they are until I look at my blown up photos afterwards. This one, though, was obvious.
I saw it pecking away at my neighbor’s tree so it was obviously a woodpecker. Also, it was very small which meant that it had to be a Downy Woodpecker. Hairy Woodpeckers look very similar but are much bigger.
Below is a video I shot of this bird on my neighbor’s tree. Listen for the tap-tap-tap sound.
