BACKYARD DOWNY WOODPECKER ACROBATICS

MARCH 30, 2014

This handsome Downy Woodpecker comes to my backyard quite often to see what there is to munch on and I am always impressed with his coordination and agility.  Hope you enjoy watching him dine and entertain at the same time.

Watching for danger and showing off his red crown at the same time.

Here’s my downy white belly.

Now showing off his fanciest trick of all.

This is a female Downy (  without the red patch)  who comes frequently also – maybe a significant other?  We may never know  –  Downys don’t mate for life, it’s just a summer romance.

Downys love suet !
