A downy woodpecker basking in the sun.

While out bird watching, I spotted this fluffy female perched in the tree in very close proximity to a hiking trail. It was by chance that I saw her because she was unusually still, quiet, and hidden behind some leaves. Even though I was very near, she posed long enough to capture the shot.
