The Red on a Woodpecker's Head for Ruby Tuesday 2

This little male downy woodpecker is a daily visitor. The female of this species is often present also, but I only feature the male here as it is only the male that has the red markings on the back of its head. This little fellow had been hungry when our peanut feeder was empty, he would actually go to the other bird feeders to eat. Just as soon as the peanut feeder was filled he showed up right away. Perhaps I'll add more pictures of this little fellow today when he shows up this morning.

And yes, this little male downy is at my feeders again this morning in Bird Alley: Here he is:
