Tuesday

Feasting at the Suet

 A good memory is one that can remember the day's blessings and forget the day's troubles 
Unknown

One of my many blessings are the birds that visit my feeders. This is a Male Downy Woodpecker. He has such a vibrant spot of Red on his head!

Lovely. He's a bit like our Lesser Spotted Woodpecker here in the UK. Or is it Great Spotted Woodpecker? I never can remember :-)

We have a wide variety of woodpeckers here in eastern Nebraska. This is one of my favorites to be sure. :)

What a lovely Downy Woodpecker : )
We have some around occasionally, they're always such curious creatures. Great shot!

Brilliant capture. We have several varieties that will be visiting my feeders soon. I let them forage for themselves through the spring and summer. Then I start filling the feeders in early to mid-November. Great Ruby Tuesday post.

Great quote.

Thank you so much for your kind comment. This is a wonderful photo - and with a quote that we would do well to remember, especially those days that are less successful...

Downey woodpeckers are so colorful and makes me excited when seeing them at the bird feeders. They just go about their business getting their own food and leaves all the other birds alone.
ta ta for now from Iowa....26 degrees , cloudy and windy.. Great day for sitting in the house and watching the birds at the feeders.

Our woodpeckers have been going after the suet cakes too. I like the quote--trying to ignore a nasty email I got from someone today. Hard to do but looking at your blog helps!
