Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens)

When I first looked out our window overlooking our bird feeders I was mystified at what appeared to be a round ball of feathers hanging onto our peanut feeder!

As I started to take pictures it moved slightly and I could then see a head and beak and knew it was the young Downy Woodpecker that we had been seeing around our feeders recently.
