Hey, you got any peanuts over there?

Downy woodpeckers are frequent visitors to the suet and peanut feeders in the yard.
This one seems to be checking on the peanut feeder.

Picoides pubescens

The Downy Woodpecker eats foods that larger woodpeckers cannot reach, such as insects living on or in the stems of weeds. You may see them hammering at goldenrod galls to extract the fly larvae inside.
