Downy Woodpecker feasts at finch feeder

Downy Woodpecker
Picoides pubescens
Normally, our hanging finch feeders don't have seed holes large enough for bigger birds to get at the contents.   Our feeders, however, are old enough to have had their seed ports worn down and enlarged a bit.   Enough so that slightly larger birds, such as the Downy Woodpecker above, can get their bigger beaks into the tube and help themselves to all the Niger Seed they want.   Birds are as opportunistic as humans and seem to know that nothing ventured is nothing gained.   Bon appetit!
