Downy Woodpecker - Birds in Sutton Massachusetts
Downy woodpeckers are gorgeous birds with black and white feathers. The males have a red spot on their heads, while the female does not. Downy woodpeckers love to eat suet.
Angry downy, because he is trying to eat sunflower seeds now that the suet feeder is empty
In this image you see the downy, on the left, compared with a hairy woodpecker on the right. Note how the downy has a shorter beak and a smaller size.
Here are five more photos of a male downy woodpecker, at a suet feeder.
