Downy Woodpecker

These cute birds love to visit our suet feeders. The male has a red mark on his head.


  1. Congratulations. Amazing photography

  2. We have a woodpecker in our old tree out back. The neighbor and my Hubs keep wanting to cut the tree down but I make them leave it there for the woodpeckers. Great Pictures!

  3. great shots of a beautiful pair. :)

  4. Aren't they the cutest? They are wonderful company all year round, but especially nice to see in the winter. Great shots!
