These Downy Woodpeckers gleaned every last reachable bit from the feeder before I could refill it.
This Downy Woodpecker is a regular visitor to my feeders.
Thank you to all of my visitors and especially the newer visitors and followers.
I will very rarely write about COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, events, personalities, which revolve around what is happening in the first half of 2020. There are many, many sources for news (and so-called news) about this terrible affliction; sources for facts (which may or may not be facts); for places to find opinions, informed and otherwise.
This is a place for a little respite, a little calm, perhaps a little tranquillity in the midst of all that is going on. It seems to me that many of us, most of us, perhaps almost all of us need a little respite, a little calm, a little tranquillity, a little pleasure, from all of the upheaval in our lives. I need such a place.
This is and will continue to be that kind of place.
A Downy Woodpecker visited this feeder in the backyard. I was able to capture it before it flew to a safe spot with its tidbit.
