PIC OF THE WEEK: 09/20/10 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2010 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Downy Woodpecker

(Picoides pubescens)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: It is easy to overlook the beauty of things because they are frequent and commonplace. There is often a complacency of observation that I experience, when it comes to common species of birds. A few weeks ago, someone looking for a photograph of a very common bird, reminded me of this "been there, seen that" attitude. It seems like I should have more, and better, images of common birds than of less abundant species. This is not always the case. So I started on a new mission, to capture better quality images of some of our more common birds. This should not be too hard, after all; they are more plentiful. This quest has re-exposed and re-excited my appreciation for so many of the species I see regularly. Sometimes in the past, I would not even raise my binoculars or lens. This little Downy Woodpecker, at just under six inches long, is one such bird. Hours of observation goes into photos like these and I remember why I appreciate the diversity of species we have as I wait and watch. I will try to stop and observe all birds more, really see them; that is where I see the character of their beauty.
