Birdfeeder Update

                                                                                                                  BarrytheBirder Photo
We have just one Downy Woodpecker visiting our feeders so far this winter and this is him.   If he has a mate and she does show up here, the red patch on the back of the male's head is what will distinguish him from her.   Females don't have a red patch.   The numbers below show the most birds (of a given species) seen at the feeders, at any one time, so far this winter.  
American Goldfinches ~ 61
Dark-eyed Juncos ~ 34
American Tree Sparrows ~ 22
Mourning Doves ~ 19
Common Redpolls ~ 18
House Sparrows ~   6
Northern Cardinals ~   5
     Blue Jays ~   4
Chickadees ~   4
House Finches ~   4
Red-breasted Nuthatches ~   2
White-breasted Nuthatches ~   2
Starling ~   1
Cooper's Hawk ~   1
Downy Woodpecker ~   1

There must be a lot of Downy Woodpeckers this year. We have had several at our feeders.

Beautiful picture. Did you take it?
BTW I feel lucky to have 2 pairs of Downy Woodpeckers, 1 pair of Hairy Woodpeckers, and 1 pair of Red Bellied Woodpeckers this winter.
