Downy Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker in my front yard in Poway. San Diego County, California.

My experience in my Poway yard with the woodpecker clan has provided me regular meetings with Nuttall’s and Acorn Woodpeckers, and sometimes the often shy Northern Flicker. Downy Woodpeckers are probably in my neighborhood more often than I see them, as there is a dense riparian corridor a stone’s throw from the hillside property I live on. I always find it a treat when they come up the hill and I get to meet them closeup. I was lucky enough to have my camera ready for this March 2012 afternoon meeting in my front yard.
