This little downy woodpecker was living up to his reputation for flitting around the brush and drumming on small branches when I encountered him yesterday.

He is easily identifiable as a male with the red spot on the back of his head; below is a female that I photographed near the same location on January 30, 2015 in Cromwell Valley Park, Maryland.
