About Today’s Photo:
I posted this photo on my Photography blog yesterday, but thought I’d share it here for those of you who don’t subscribe to that blog (nudge-nudge!) This little female downy woodpecker has been hanging around our suet feeder for the past several days. She will fly in, nibble from the feeder, then hop on to the adjacent birch, tuck her head under her wing and take a little nap. She’ll repeat the process through the day. I was wondering if this was normal behavior, so I consulted Bird Diva, Bridget Butler, about it. She was a tad unsure and looked things up. You can read about what she discovered here.
