Downy Woodpecker 1-22-14 Lorain Ohio USA

by Mark E. Schrull

1/22/14 Lorain – It was cold this morning here.  When I filled my wild bird feeder it was 6 degrees (F).  Total cloud cover to the east blocked the sun at sunrise.  We got a dusting of snow over night.  It is currently mostly sunny.

A Downy Woodpecker visited the feeder this morning around 9:30 AM.

I identified the woodpecker with the help of the bird watcher’s book National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds Eastern Region.
