[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Downy Woodpecker is a year round visitor here in Ohio. Their distinct calls can be heard throughout the day, as they fly from tree to tree in search of insects in every crack and crevice.

Male and female look similar except for a red patch the male wears on the back of his head. Almost identical to the Hairy Woodpecker in appearance, but a bit smaller in size and with a shorter beak.
