We had a snow day in NYC today, but the accumulation wasn't much as evidenced by the snow atop my "water cooler" for birds (featured in the photo atop this entry). But the snowfall was enough to deter most birds from visiting my garden! Therefore, it was especially nice to have the company of a lone downy woodpecker on this snow day and his singing in the snow all the more cheerful for your truly.
He can be seen in the next set of pictures enjoying peanuts from one of my bird feeders.
Btw, this bird type is featured in my book series, Words In Our Beak.
