hello friends, today i present you
the Downy Woodpecker with his
black & white patterned wings

from All About birds website :


« Regional Differences
Downy Woodpeckers in the West
are darker overall, and they tend to
have less white in the wings than
birds from eastern North America.
Pacific Northwest have a dusky wash overall.

Similar Species
Hairy Woodpeckers are larger than
Downy Woodpeckers and have a larger bill
that is almost as long as the entire head.
Hairy Woodpeckers have a longer and more
distinct black mark on the shoulder,
and in most populations, completely white
outer tail feathers. A Downy Woodpecker's
“whinny” call descends in pitch toward
the end, unlike the Hairy Woodpecker's call.
Nuttall's and Ladder-backed woodpeckers
have horizontal bars on the back.
Red-cockaded Woodpecker is a rare
bird of southeastern pine forests. It has
a barred back and white cheek. »

Hello Asbed,
Yes the black and white wing and body markings show well in this in-flight capture of the Downy Woodpecker. I like the wing position and the POV against the fine blue sky and bare branch BG.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hello Asbed,
This Woodpecker is a beauty showing its wings open! Good focus and fine details and colours. A busy background though that you can't avoid with your present lens.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Asbed,
this one is very very dynamic in-flight shot. i liked the way that you photographed it. Details and colours great.
TFS ang G's,

Bien captada por la óptima velocidad de obturación. Disparo en el momento oportuno de tener las alas desplegadas, y eso mejora su vistaQuizás algo justa de lus, pero en conjunto superándote dia a dia.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Asbed,

I love seeing your Woodpeckers in flight. The wings show up so well and the face does too. Love the wing positions. Still haven't seen any here - guess I have to wait a while. Actually there's not much of interest here - only our year round residents.


hello Asbed
the known beautiful setting with one excellent pose, very good shot and explicit details

Hello Asbed,

an very nice inflight shot from the master with good pov.


Hello Asbed,
Une belle photo bien en focus de ce pic en vol

Hello Asbed,
a splendid capture of the Downy Woodpecker in-flight, fine detail of the bird and very beautiful natural colours, very good POV
Best regards

bonjour Asbed
merveilleus image de ce pic mineur, avec ses jolies plumes noires et blanches des ailes et de la queue, qui effectue son vol plané entre les arbres et le ciel bleu, un très belle composition
Passe une bonne nuit

You got an excellent pose from this guy Asbed. It's a beautiful bird. You got a fairly clear shot of it too. Nicely done. Trevor

Hello Asbed,
Hope you'll be enjoying this first Sunday of 2010. I have come to thank you by visiting your page and stand obliged for all the comments and your support, brother. Wanted to comment on this elegant woodpecker photo which in colours resembles this winter landscape where trees stand denuded and winter is harsh but this fine flurry of feathers adds colours to life and this picture which is splendid...thanks for sharing...warmest regards/Abid

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'oiseau. la prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs du pic mineur en vol. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
