Strange Visitors

Hummingbirds are a great distraction after a hard day at work. After they get used to you being near they can become pretty fearless and on occasion get within feet of me. I have 2 feeders hanging. One from the tree in my front yard and the other near a hanging basket of flowers on my front porch. Lately I’ve taken my camera and waited.

It’s not just Hummingbirds that seem to enjoy my food.

IMG_0578This Downy Woodpecker has been visiting for the past few days. Now I’ve been feeding birds for a very long time, and never have i seen this kind of behavior. Now I’m sure this has happened to others who feed the Hummingbirds, but it’s a first for me.
