Rainy Days And Mondays

I know what the song says…Rainy days and Mondays always get me down…and today was both rainy and a Monday…but how about we add one letter and make it Downy instead?

This pair of Downy Woodpeckers stopped by this afternoon and paused just long enough for me to take a picture.

The female is all black and white…


…while the male has a handsome red head patch.


They helped to brighten a cold and drizzly day!

    love these cuties! they are frequent at our home too! Freezing rain heading our way. The birds always seem to become very active and hungry when storms are coming.

    Lovely Downy Monday! These guys brighten any day.

  7. What a beautiful pair of birds, your shots are amazing!

  8. A random thought: If a family of these woodpeckers were to nest inside a church, could it then be called Downyton Abbey? 🙂
