The Downy Woodpecker is a bird that we often see in our backyard, competing with other small birds for sunflower seeds form the bird feeder. It does not eat peanuts, perhaps because those are too big for their beak. In the spring and summer, it can be heard drumming against wood, whether on trees or on our house trims!

Today one of them, a male, lingered among the magnolia branches for a minute or so, allowing me to capture it in the following photos.
