Another Woodpecker
 
I believe this is also an immature bird (Judging From the Confirmation Of The Feathers). This is a pretty healthy crop.

That little guy looks like he thinks he's the cat's pyjamas. You definitely couldn't have asked for a better pose.
I never realized that their feathers were so textured.
Nice Shot :)

Kevin, I'd say that's an adult, female Downy Woodpecker, fresh from taking a bath (I can relate to the bad hair do!). Great shot.

Hi Janet, the color of the breast feathers is what's confusing me. But the bath idea certainly makes sense. :D
