I recently took this photo of a female Downy Woodpecker. She was in the forest nearby to where I live in Toronto. We have seen a number of woodpeckers recently, but they always seemed to appear when I didn't have my camera with me. After a number of disappointing camera walks I thought we would never see one at the right time. But just at the end of our walk, as it was getting dark, I managed to photograph this woodpecker. Downy Woodpeckers are the smallest of the woodpecker species. Their main foods are insects, fruits and sap. I am sure that the hole behind her in the tree was one of her food sources.
