Hi,

I'm very new to bird watching. I recently moved from the city in New York to a new home with 8 acres in Missouri. I really want to start a bird community in my yard so I have spread feeder of all kinds all over. I just started over the last few weeks. I have 9 seed feeders, 5 suet feeders, 2 birdhouses, 4 oriole feeders and 2 hummingbird feeders. Once I started I couldn't stop lol.

I believe this is a female downy woodpecker (?), but I'm not 100% sure feeding off one of my suet feeders. If anyone can verify this or let me know different I would really appreciate it.

Thanks so much!
