Downy woodpecker

(Ohio)


We have been hearing the sounds of this woodpecker for weeks now. So we went and bought a peanut feeder and hung it outside along with the other bird feeders. Within just a couple of days this downy woodpecker came to investigate. She has now been coming many times daily to eat the peanuts! We are very happy to have this new visitor!!
