The Downies with a sweet....beak

 I have had such fun over the last month watching two young Downy woodpeckers drinking out of the hummingbird feeder.  When I first saw it, I thought it was funny but never did I think they would become regular visitors!

A nice resting place before hopping up to the feeder. This is the female.


If you look closely, you see the tiny new red feathers on this males head.


Hummingbirds would just fly around until the woodpecker was ready to leave. 

 They certainly are going to miss their sweet fix when the feeder comes down!
