14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Eastern Bluebird & Downy Woodpecker making friends

I have a tree in my backyard that has a "magic branch" where the birds perch before visiting the feeders. Woodpeckers are abundant in my area but Bluebirds are a rare sight. This was one of those fleeting moments that would be nearly impossible to capture a second time.
