Woody Woodpecker and Friends

I enjoy exploring the urban woods and surrounding areas near home.

Lately I’ve been lucky to spot some colorful woodpeckers.

The big pileated woodpecker is especially fun to see. It’s not only the largest woodpecker in the USA, but it was the inspiration for Woody Woodpecker.

Another interesting woodpecker, and with red on its head too, is the downey woodpecker. It’s much smaller than its pileated friend, but also has interesting colors.
