This downy woodpecker is one of our regular visitors.  To minimize competition at the feeder we are using a suet feeder that is oriented horizontally,  This position discourages visitors like the European starlings that can wipe out a feeder in a few hours.
Here is a wren that shows how awkward eating at one of these feeders can be for some birds.
Feeding is not a problem for the nuthatch either.

Fall is tied to memories of family traditions.  One of ours that has persisted through the years and generations is home made ravioli.  Hopefully digital images will evoke memories like old photo albums have in the past.  Not too many images but a few well chosen photos that bring us back to some of our most cherished moments.



Moved this summer.  Won't have as many bird photos.  But the dragon flies are plentiful here.
