Up close and personal with a Downy Woodpecker.

Rondeau Provincial Park, Feb 3, 2023.
Dryobates pubescens
The Downy Woodpecker eats foods that larger woodpeckers cannot reach, such as insects living on or in the stems of weeds. You may see them hammering at goldenrod galls to extract the fly larvae inside.
