Camera Critters

This is a Downy Woodpecker, I think, if not it's a Hairy Woodpecker.

I took this through my front window. We also have a Red Bellied Woodpecker that comes to our feeder. I just can't catch him. Everytime I try for a picture he flies away. I'll get him one of these days.

This is my guessing game. How may sparrows can you find?

I think this maybe a better picture, if you enlarge it.

These little guys snuggle deep into the tangled honeysuckle bush on very cold days and nights.

Excellent picture of the Woodpecker! I didn't realize they were so beautiful. I might have watched too many Woody Woodpecker cartoons growing up. I thought they were all red, lol.

Lovely colours on the woodpecker.

I think I can count about 9 sparrows.... we have something like that near us, where the birds gather..

I see 7 but surely there are more blending so well. My hear turned over when you said honeysuckle bush. I miss them so much sandy

I'm thinking I see 9 but I'm not totally sure. 7 positively, 2 possibles.
