2008 Canada 25-cent Coloured Downy Woodpecker Coin For Sale


You are offerding on a 2008 Canada 25-cent Coloured Downy Woodpecker Coin with all original mint packaging and COA. Please note there is an additional superficial crease in the COA.It's one of the most distinctive sounds in the forest. Most who hear it feel compelled to find the woodpecker hammering away at a branch to extract a juicy meal with its long pointed tongue, perhaps a small insect or larva under the bark of a rotting tree.
Of the 13 woodpecker species living year-round in Canada, the Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens) is the smallest and most familiar. At just 14-17 cm (6-7 in), it can excavate a nest cavity in a dead tree just 10 cm (4 in) around. This gives the Downy more habitat options than larger woodpeckers that need bigger trees, and it often nests in suburban woods across southern Canada.
The Downy can survive a life-time of hammering because its strong, chisel-shaped beak, spongy skull structure and strong neck muscles absorb the force of the blows. Even its nostrils are covered with feathers to avoid inhaling sawdust. Watch for a flash of red on the back of the head when you locate that tell-tale "dat-dat-dat" it's a sure sign thata male Downy has just come into view.Shipping discounts available on multiple items purchased, please read below for discount details.
