While writing, noted a flash of red out of the corner of my eye. Turned to look and saw a male downy woodpecker on the sunflower seed feeder. Called for the Frenchie and Pablo. By the time they arrived, he'd moved over to the suet feeder and his girlfriend perched herself next to him.

The three of us sat transfixed watching the new visitors we'd only, up to this point, heard before. What a treat.

(Brings us to 16 species we've seen so far from the kitchen window.)
