As we've mentioned previously, early summer provides for some great viewing & fabulous entertainment around the garden as bird "families" arrive near or at the feeders. The Downy Woodpeckers (along with the Red-bellied Woodpeckers & Hairy Woodpeckers) are some of the best visitors!! The tiny squeaks of the Downy Woodpeckers can be heard from the trees as they anticipate the arrival of food. Eventually, the newly-fledged Downys will follow mom or pop to the feeders, waiting for a delicious feeding of peanuts or suet...two of their favourites! It is so fun to observe the wee Downy as he or she moves around the feeder as a parent gathers the food. Soon the Downys will have this feeder thing figured out & are able to feed themselves....just a treat to watch all the action!!
