  1. I found this bird laying on its belly on the concrete walkway.  It wouldn't move away as I pass around it and it stares at me.  After a few moments, it hops to a nearby tree and starts to slowly climb 4 feet up a tree and stops.  Then goes about it merry ways and pecks at the tree as if I'm not there, being 5 feet away.  Strange, most animals would flee.  Anyways, I'm delighted this is my first encounter of this type of bird in my 60 years in Chicago, IL.  Unfortunately, all I had at the time was my low resolution wide-angled phone camera.  Is this a woodpecker?  Juvenile?
