The Downy Woodpecker is found in most parts of the United States and is one of the smaller woodpeckers. This pair was photographed at a backyard feeder in Northern Wisconsin. The Upper Midwest is renowned for its large and diverse avian population. The male (seen on the right side of the feeder) has a red nape patch.
