Our Resident Woodpeckers

I managed to get a picture with both of the woodpeckers that are hanging out with us this winter. The guy on the left is a Hairy Woodpecker, I believe, while the little one on the right is a Downy Woodpecker. They both spend quite a bit of time at my feeder.

Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers by you.

Here is a picture of the feeder. It's a very cool feeder made locally that consists of a piece of beaver wood with holes drilled in it for little rolls of suet. I bought it my local bird feed store, Critters Feed & Seed, in Moorhead, MN. The people who own this little store are very nice and are always happy to talk birding. You can't really say that about your local big box store so I buy my seed there whenever I can. They also have better quality seed and will reuse the seed bags if I bring them back. If you live in the Fargo/Moorhead area I suggest you try them out.
