It has been sunny and warm for the past few days and the snow is finally beginning to melt away. In other words it's starting to feel like spring. As a result I couldn't wait to get outside with my camera. Not many birds have come back yet from the south, however I did manage to get some wonderful shots of this Downy Woodpecker this morning. I even got one of this bird next to a White-breasted Nuthatch to show just how small this woodpecker truly is.
