I have had a lot of different birds visit my bird feeders and the suet. Sometimes I get unwanted guests. I just went outside and chased away four squirrels. I also put a scoop or two of seed on the ground so the pesky squirrels can get some without damaging my feeders. Of course I have to run out and chase them once in awhile to keep them on their toes (grin), or maybe just for fun.
Earlier this morning, I saw this bird on my suet:
I wasn't sure what it was. I thought that it was a Downy Woodpecker, but I thought that they always had a bit of red on the back of their heads like the one in this picture:
Well, I learned something this morning. I looked it up and yep, it was a Downy, but a female Downy. Hey, I am 73 years old and I don't ever remember seeing a female before. Surely I have, but for the life of me, I can't remember. I can usually remember things from years ago very easily, it is just that short term memory thing that I have trouble with. . . now what was the topic of this blog??? Oh yes, I guess it was for the birds. . . now you all have a great day, you hear?
