Downy woodpecker eating shelled peanuts
Last Monday morning this male downy treated himself to peanuts in this feeder right outside my kitchen door.
And click HERE to see a photo of a hairy woodpecker eating peanuts at this same feeder in December.
To join in the fun, visit Misty Dawn at CAMERA CRITTERS.
Wow you really zoomed in. Downies are so sweet.
What a fuzzy little belly he has! And a cute red cap too!
I am going to get a feeder this weekend. I keep stalking my neighbor's, but it would be so much fun to have my own. Nice shot!
What a pretty bird and what a great capture! Beautiful!
I love the downies. They have such personality.
What an incredible closeup photo. Great job.
This is a great picture of the Downy.
Nice closeup. Ya did good.
I like the wibbly reflection in the previous post.
I am not on track yet. I can't keep up with myself. LOL MB
woodpeckers and peanuts. I didn't know they eat peanuts.
Great close up. I'd like to get my hands on lens like yours. I've already got the bird feeder and get mostly sparrows.
He is such a cute little fella.
I have them at the feeders as well,and enjoy every visit.
Oops! I've been forgetting all the memes I enjoy, especially this one. But you are doing yeoman's service for the likes of me. Terrific photo of this active bird.
Great shot! He looks so soft.
Oh my... isn't he just the cutest thing? He looks so tiny! Glad you caught him at the feeder. What a treat!
That's a good shot of him eating his breakfast.
Which reminds me, I haven't had breakfast yet.
Great closeup! That is a remarkable capture, EG.
I wish I could snap something like that sometime. It would help if I had a bird feeder. haha
Happy Saturday ~
Fantastic closeup of this little redhead.
Nice shot of the Downey!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
he's so sweet :)
there is a woodpecker across the way from me
I have never seen him although I hear him all the time
Very nice closeup! So what's the diff between a "downy woodpecker" and a "hairy woodpecker"?
The hairy one seemed to have longer claws.
Rainy season in Florida is usually the summertime when we often get afternoon showers. Which is nice 'cause it tends to cool things down.
What a cool bird to have in your garden!
Utterly amazing. You are so very good at what you do.
Right outside your door! What a treat! Super photo.

A cool camera critter close-up! I like to eat peanuts, too! Ha!
Wow - fabulous close-up!
Wonderful capture of the Downy! they are one of my favorite yardbirds.
Wonderful capture. I wish we had visitors like that :)
Just amazing. VERY well done.
Did you get rain/snow, too? WHEW. I had to have a bath..my arms are so sore!
Cheers from S.E. Ontario Cottage Country!
Great photo of a cute little guy. His beak is just the right size to reach in for a treat.
