  • Small Little Woodpecker in Caledon


    This small little woodpecker has been in my backyard for quite a while but I haven’t been able to get a good picture of him until now. I am not entirely sure but I think it is either a female Downy Woodpecker or a female Hairy Woodpecker, if you know please let me know. I have seen these little guys all over Caledon and if it wasn’t for the wood pecking you might easily mistake it for chickadee or some other small little bird. Picture was taken with my Olympus 70-300mm zoom lens and was then cleaned up and enhanced with the program Photomatix. Below is a small Animated GIF I made of it pecking at the white birch tree.

    The small one (it’s sparrowy in size though bit bigger) is the Downy Woodpecker (the smallest woodpecker in North America). The bigger one is the Hairy Woodpecker. They look exactly the same but for their size.
