Here are pictures of our voracious suet eaters! I think these are Downy's, right Thornius? We sure enjoy them. Pictures are taken through my kitchen window screen, so they're not real crisp-sorry!

You are correct, SIR! Those are Downys. The top picture is a male, the bottom is a female. Only males have red on the head. The head of the female is black and white, ONLY.

A bird in the hand......can sometimes be a mess.

Great - thanks. They were actually on the feeder earlier this week at the same time, which I thought was neat to see them chowing down together. I'm SO happy to see all the birds coming back, and I love seeing "3 days until spring" when I log onto Gardener's Forum!
