Downy Woodpeckers, the smallest of our eastern woodpeckers, are frequent visitors at our winter feeding station. The white feathers about this male’s head and breast appear to be stained brown. With a number of black walnut trees I am guessing that they are the source of his staining.
I, too, get these little guys at my feeder. They love the suet cakes.
It doesn't get any better!
I have 3 pair of Downys visiting my feeders this year and I couldn't be more excited! :)
They're so much fun to watch.
Wish I could see these in real life. Amazingly beautiful birds, even walnut stained.
They sure are very colorful birds. Good Image, Coy.
