BACKYARD DOWNY WOODPECKER ACROBATICS

Image

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 !

    Your photos are wonderful. So is your narrative. You could have a career in the works. Do you subscribe to Missouri Conservationist and Missouri Resources magazines? They are free, and welcome photos.

      Thanks for the compliment! Thanks also for telling me about the magazine – I had no idea! But I just signed up for both. You and Beulah enjoy this beautiful day! Jeannie
