The Smallest of Starts

I've made the smallest of starts on Cottage Garden Sampling's "November's Chrysanthemum". A turkey and a couple of leaves.

I usually see Downy Woodpeckers at the suet feeders.

It was a pleasant surprise to see one at a feeder in the backyard.

The bird was sheltered from the rain under the plastic feeder's dome. 

Note how he is clinging to the seed cylinder rather than the feeder's edge. 

I've never had more than one Downy at a time at any of my feeders.

And it has been over two years since I've seen a female Downy.

Come on buddy, next time bring your friends and family!

I really like the look of that start! We just have Downy Woodpeckers very rarely at our feeder.
