I am not a bird expert, I just love watching them at the feeders.
Is this a Downey Wood Pecker??
Its hard at times to get around those sticks LOL!! I bought these cheap feeders a few years ago, and there was just no room for the bird to sit, and eat :)) so the birds didn’t use them. Hillibilly thinking, cut sticks, and put them through the holes so the birds can have a place to relax……its a stick fix LOL!
