The small Downy Woodpecker is always a welcomed guest to my suet feeders or scooting up and down the trunks of our birch trees looking for insects. In the second pic of the collage, you can see he was sitting on the deck railing looking up at the suet feeder then up to a branch and over to the feeder he went. He also likes to eat at the upside down suet feeder.
The Red-bellied Woodpecker came to my suet feeder this weeks too. He is a medium sized woodpecker with a nice red cap and barred back. The Red-bellied likes to drink from my hummingbird feeders. The first time I saw him hanging on to their feeders, I was shocked. No wonder my hummingbird feeders were empty every day. You wouldn't think with his big thick bill, he could drink out of their feeder.
A Carolina Wren was first eating loose seeds on our deck, then on the deck railing, then quickly up to the upside down suet feeder. You can really get a look at his warm buffy orange belly in the third pic of the collage. Only the male Carolina Wren sings.
I am happy to see that I still have hummingbirds at the feeders. I know it won't be for much longer.
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
