Lunch

This male Downy Woodpecker seemed to be enjoying his lunch of seeds and suet. These were one of the few birds that made their presence known all winter.

Love his downy chest feathers Pat, all puffed up to keep warm 😊
P.s. I think you may have the name of your link wrong Pat ✨

Woodpeckers are one of my favorite backyard visitors. I always have to take a minute to decide 'downy' or 'hairy' but I'm getting quicker at it.

How awesome birds! What woodpecker is this?

Established a feeder last month. No woodpeckers at the dinner table yet. Lots of aggressive Starlings, though.

It is a beautiful woodpecker.

I see them here too, but they are very camera-shy
