Earlier this week I heard some kind of knocking sound — or maybe even the gentle sound of a rocking chair — coming from the front porch. Slowly opening the door to peer outside, there was a downy woodpecker on the wisteria vine pecking away at a bug smorgasboard. Quietly retreating from the door, I found my camera and slipped back over to snap a photo of my visitor. What a beauty!
