The first one is as good as you can get! Outstanding image!

I can't seem to get Downy's with any regularity. Anything special at your feeders that keep them coming back?

Thanks Andy!

We have a feeder with suet baskets on each end. The Downey's love the suet. (The suet also brings in the Red Bellied...) I also bait a dead tree with peanuts, although I haven't started doing that yet this year. This is the most Downey's I've seen here ever. We are also seeing a lot of Blue-jays, although they don't stay around long enough to pose...
