This downy woodpecker doesn't seem to mind being almost upside down while trying to get at the suet!
Downy woodpecker, hanging on to the suet feeder as it spins around.
The other birds have been ignoring the suet feeder (will have to try another brand/"flavour", next time!), so it was good to see this downy woodpecker working at getting some, even as he was spinning in circles!

Now you see me... ... now you don't!
It looks like this woodpecker snagged a little snack from out of the tree! Or maybe it's just the lighting, and I'm just seeing her beak... 😀
It's hard to tell, but I think she's got something in her beak! Lunch time! 🙂
The woodpeckers have drilled some pretty big holes in this dead spruce!!
This female downy woodpecker would stop to snack on some seeds, in between drilling holes in the dead spruce tree!
I love how this female Downy woodpecker has her chin tucked right in. 🙂 The woodpeckers are going to miss this dead tree when we finally cut it down!
