The Downy Woodpecker

Birds, Nature, Photography

These little downy woodpeckers are constantly at the feeder. We watched one just sit there on the suet and not move for the longest time. Perhaps she was food drunk and was just steadying herself. That was the story we told ourselves with grins on our faces. All this bird feeding…does it do the birds a disservice? Shouldn’t they be gathering their own food? I do know it brings nature a bit closer and the birds give interesting lessons about living.
