I finally got my close up of a bird. I should be happy but I'm not. This darling female downy woodpecker is the second bird to hit my patio door this week (and no...my patio glass is NOT super clean). The other bird didn't make it. That broke my heart.
I gently set her on the deck rail.
Her left talon doesn't look so good.
She stayed quite awhile before flying off to a tree branch...
where she remains.
I think she's going to be OK.
I sure hope so.
