Downy  Woodpecker eating black oil sunflower seed out of hanging feeder at my 

My downy woodpeckers regularly perch on my tube feeder and eat the  sunflower 
seed.  My big surprise the other day was when I had one land on  my 
hummingbird feeder to satisfy his "sweet tongue."  When I reported that,  
people wrote to say they'd had the same experience, and one of our  western 
reported that he has a gila woodpecker that comes to the hummer  feeder 
daily.  Sometimes birds have more diverse diets that we might  think.
