Nearly Speechless Sunday: Ha-ha-ha-HAA-ha!!

female Downy Woodpecker

We got an just after sunrise visit from a female Downy Woodpecker at one of our many birdfeeders!  She's staring intently deciding what piece to pull out of the acorn next! Besides the Downy Woodpeckers, we also get visits from Hairy Woodpeckers, Red Bellied Woodpeckers, every now and then we see the huge Pileated Woodpeckers too.

But the one woodpecker we never see here, Woody!





Chirp at you later!

Roger, True :)

Melissa, Considering the rate they go through seed, I think you might be right!  Need to hit Wally World today and restock, we're down to the last bits in our current bag.

Scott, I was surprised she let me get close enough to get the picture!  As soon as she heard the CLICK of the Blackberry, she flew off.

BLiz - great shot! I'm not sure we get many woodpeckers out here. I don't think I've seen many and definitely not in a very long time.

Donne, Not sure Cali has the habitat to suit them, at least not around L.A.!

Anita, Probably some hiding out in the Georgia pine forests...or maybe all that Warner-Robins AFB activity scared 'em off!  But the treat factory hanging from our gutters might explain it too!

Now that's a fountain I could really get into!!!  I have always loved the Piliated Woodpeckers.  My grandmother introduced me to them when I was a small child and they still carry a mistique for me.

Tish, The Pileated are just massive birds.  When they're working trees out in our woods, they're little doubt they're around!  We usually only see one at a time, and not often, but rarely we've seen a pair together.  Amazing to watch!

I've never seen an acorn bird feeder.  These woodpeckers are huge.

Kay, We found the feeders online before Christmas.  Would guess the woodpecker's body is about 5" or so?  Not huge, but bigger than most of the other birds at the feeder.

Ginny, Turns out there are quite a few Woody Woodpecker cartoons on Youtube :)

Hey we've had an occassional woodpecker here in Phoenix and it's always been quite an odd thing.  There was one busy guy who pecked the heck our of one of our biggest cacti ....... the holes are everywhere but he's been gone for at least a year!

AB, We've had people here have to get wood siding repaired thanks to the woodpeckers! Uncommon, but can happen.  I'd think the AZ area wouldn't be real popular with the woodpeckers...maybe upstate in the more wooded country.

Love your acorn feeder. We do have woodpeckers here in Maryland.

I can't believe I watched the entire video. Nice way to finish a weekend.

That's a lot of woodpeckers.  I wouldn't recognize one if it hit me in the face.  I only know it's a woodpecker when I hear the knocking.

Jane, I don't think woodpeckers care much for concrete and palm trees :)
