Male Downy Woodpecker

By Gregg Thompson


© Gregg Thompson View Large

What is the only state in the U.S. where Downy Woodpeckers are not found? Hawai'i!

This male Downy Woodpecker foraged on a mossy trunk in Washington State near photographer Gregg Thompson. Interestingly, male and female Downy Woodpeckers often look for food on different parts of the tree: males usually on the more productive branches while the females forage closer to the trunk.

See other photos of this bird here and here.
