He's Back...

Male Downy Woodpecker...
part of the boom-a-rang generation!!

 
It's getting pretty expensive to feed this guy...

  3. You inspired me to get three bird feeders. I don't know how I lived without them! Now as I sit and work for 8 hours a day I look out my window and see dozens of my feathered friends!

  6. Your kids probably complained that all they got to eat throughout college was bird feed. ;>)

  10. Pretty Bird! We have a pair of woodpeckers that have lived in our back yard elm tree for a few years now. I just love birds......nearly ALL birds. Not too fond of the trash birds, though.

  12. Terrific photographs, Debbie! Our Downy Woodpeckers can get enough of the suet cakes. I believe I replace them once a week.

  25. Thanks for a memory on this one. When we lived in Washington we had a woodpecker that would wake us up as he pecked away at our steel chimney. We tried all sorts of things to scare him a ways; but nothing really worked. I think we should have tried feeding him at an other location.
    I am smiling at this one!
