My Favorite Bird

The Downy Woodpecker, probably my favorite Backyard Bird. A Bird with a sweet personality, and fun to watch. I usually have peanuts for them, but if I don’t, I make a suet out of melted peanut Butter and mixed seeds and nuts in it, whatever I have on hand, also mix in cornmeal. I also learned that they like sugar water from my Hummingbird feeders.One winter, I got one to eat from my hand, that was very exciting !

A good Winter food for them
