Gila Woodpeckers are constant visitors at hummingbird feeders in Arizona, as are Hooded Orioles,
and Scott's on migration. The woodpeckers can be very destructive, they like a bigger hole and will
make it that way. Somewhere I read that the woodpeckers and hummingbird's tongues are constructed
the same way, hence the ability to use that source of food.
This morning, in Lincoln, I noticed a downy flying back and forth betwen the feeder and the lilac,
not usual behavior. Then something attached itself to the window scree, not three feet from my
head, and I understood. It was a fledgling downy getting nearer to the food source.
