Hungry Bunch



Amid the pileated and red bellied
woodpeckers,
I have tons of
these little
downy woodpeckers.
They are the smallest
of the crew
but I swear they are going
to eat me out of house and home!


I do love 'em though
so will continue to bribe
them into posing for me.

OMC Ms. Jill you have Pileated Woodpeckers at your feeders. What a treat that must be. Those majestic woodpeckers are in and around NC but Mom has never seen one in person. Our Downy's are ravenous too. Mom bought 4 cakes of suet yesterday...she loves watching them eat while she eats.

You are so lucky getting all these wee birds coming to you.
All we have here are seagulls, magpies and crows.
I love to see everybody's pictures of the little birds!!!

We are starting to get a few of these back at our suet feeders -- but it will need to turn colder for the whole crew to show up! :)

I have woodpeckers where I live also but they seem to love the hummingbird food and steal as much as they can. They get on the feeder and tip it so another can drink. You got some good pictures.

xo,

They are a lovely looking bird, well worth feeding to keep them coming back.

I love them also. They hunt through my feeders looking for the peanuts!

Lynne said...

Keep feeding them so we can see your photos . . . We will send our woodpeckers your way . . . They want to "tap, tap, tap" on the fireplace surround on one side of the house, which is cedar. Drives my H crazzzzy!

You're lucky to have so many different woodpeckers - in Enland we only have two that are seen in gardens. So keep bribing them and keep appreciating them!

Jennifer said...

They are so cute, I love when they stop in at my bird station... I need to make some more hm suet block to hang up.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They are such cute little birds!

Happy Monday Ms. Jill!!
I cracked the whip which made Mom prepare a week's work of blog post so I'll be in blogville every day.
I might be a little slow on visiting bloggies but I'll get there. MOL So if I miss you one day I'll surely be there the next
Hugs
