Oh I love this little critter! I have a couple of downy woodpeckers coming to the feeders very often. The male woodpecker is a bit into himself and dominate the feeder while the female waits a short distant away.
When the woodpecker comes, they made little noise or calling and then quiet down to concentrate on feeding for a while.
I am always very happy to see them, especially on those gray days when liveliness is so welcome in my world.
With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.~~~Confucius~~~
