Downy Woodpecker

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.
