While I was at the Chickamauga Dam on Thursday February 16th 2012 I noticed for the first time this Suet Feeder.
I didn’t know what a Suet Feeder was until a week or two ago. Now that I have learned that they attract woodpeckers, I want one!
This Downey Woodpecker spent a few seconds on the feeder and I managed to make a few photos before she flew away. Here’s the best of those photos. I hope you enjoy it.
Downey Woodpecker Female on Suet Feeder
I didn’t know what a Downey Woodpecker was until just now either. It took me a while to figure it out because most of the Downey Woodpecker pictures online are of males and the males have a red spot on the back of their head so I ignored them and kept on looking. I enjoy doing the research for this blog. It was rewarding when I finally figured it out.
Thanks for stopping by!
