Lunchtime for this little guy!
With the weather getting colder it’s starting to get busy at the feeders.
Suet is loved by just about all the birds and even squirrels try to get to it.
Hairy and downy woodpeckers are almost impossible to tell apart when encountered individually. But if you look at their bills, you’ll notice that the hairy woodpecker’s bill is long and slender, whereas the downy’s bill is rather short and stubby for its head size. The males have a bright red patch on the backs of their heads which makes it easy to tell them apart from the females.
Which woodpeckers live in your area?
