You’ll never see a fat woodpecker
As I wrote in the post “A chickadee grooming“, we had fabulous weather here last weekend, and as I was hiking on Sunday, I came across this juvenile downy woodpecker using up a lot of energy in search of a meal. It dawned on me while watching this woodpecker just how hard they work for most of their meals. I guess that’s why you never see a fat woodpecker. Here’s the series of shots I took as it was probing for a morsel of food.
All that work, all the contortions it went through, just for one small meal, and we think we’ve got it rough. 😉
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
