THANK YOU ALL!
Donna, I didn't find him there. It's a composit. I shoot the birds at my feeder and place them in a more suitable background. It takes far less patience and luck.

Thanks, Donna.
Lis, this little fellow has made a bit of money for me in print sales. I'm very sure to keep plenty of suet in the feeder for him and his friends.
Thanks for your comment.

That reminds me--I need to buy suet! I never see downy woodpeckers, although we have them around here. We get lots of the big acorn woodpeckers. ANYWAY, this is a terrific photo--you always capture our feathered friends so beautifully. Congratulations on your well-deserved win!

Thanks, Colleen.
All kinds of woodpeckers are attracted to suet; hairy, downey and redbellied.
