Downy Woodpecker

The focus of today's post is this little acrobatic  male Downy

Woodpecker.  This little bird is a frequent visitor and the peanut feeder is his favourite choice to feed at.  As the feeder is low in peanuts and needs refilling this little bird is focusing his feeding at the bottom of the feeder this morning, showing off his versatility at feeding postures.  He is a handsome little bird with his attractive red patch at the back of his head, announcing to the world that he is a male woodpecker.
Other birds at our feeders are Chickadees, Tree Sparrows, one lone Blue Jay and a little Red-breasted Nuthatch.  Its really cold out there this morning and we are awaiting a big snow storm which should roll in by this afternoon.
