This little friend has become quite a regular at our birdfeeders recently.
It is a female downy woodpecker.
I have spotted her in the trees as well. They love the suet feeders but also probe dead limbs and plants for insects. (sorry missy those trees aren't dead!) And also eat fruit and seeds.
And here she is on the other side of the fence in our neighbour's tree.
We see this little bird quite regularly too. Can you spot it? It blends in so well with the earth.
It's a fox sparrow. They have such a pretty patterned plumage.
They are mostly ground feeders and do the cutest little back and forth hopping dance to stir up the ground looking for seeds!
Honestly, who needs tv when you have these little cuties to entertain you?!
Who's visiting your feeders these days?
