Downy Woodpeckers are fun to watch as they rotate around a branch. This one stopped to peek where a limb had broken away.
The trees at Meigs Point are a popular spot for these Woodpeckers, sometimes giving their location away with their tat-tat-tat searching for food.
The late December afternoon sun at Hammonasset Beach State Park provided a nice light for photographing these Chickadees. Several of them were flitting in dried reeds near the beach.
Others were hanging out at a fruit tree near the marsh.
