Hello Birders,
At 10 AM today, at my Charlotte Park home in West Nashville, a male downy  
woodpecker landed on top of my hummingbird feeder.  He inspected it for a  
moment, saw me reach for my camera, then fled!  Wonder if he thought it was  
or if he actually wanted a little sugar in his system?  My birds'  water 
supply is just below and to the left of the hummingbird feeder.  My  downys do 
in orange fruit and grape jelly, as well as peanut butter  once in a great 
I'm having a pretty good run of female and immature hummingbirds and have  
even had one or more males yesterday & today.They are such little gems of  
birds.  I always love having them here.
