I found this little woodpecker outside the bedroom window. He didn’t see the glass. Carefully picking him up I stroked  his tiny body, then lay him on a napkin. For a couple of days I’d come by, say hello and lovingly sketch him.  I gave him back to nature by placing him under one of the tall pine trees down by the the creek.
