Cutest Downy Pecker

I love this little guy, he would just come and pose or me.

First Feathers

This little male Downy had recently fledged and was learning to take care of himself. He’s still a little fluffy looking.

Mummy I’m hungry

We have really enjoyed watching the Downy or Hairy (could someone help us with that please) Woodpecker family raising their young. Both the male and female have been feeding them from our suet feeder. The babies eagerly wait for their parents to feed and then feed them. It is reality TV at its best.
