My friend Harold

This is Harold he is a Downy Woodpecker

Harold was hatched under the sign of Feed Me!

He likes long early morning flights, hanging around with Nuthatches and Gold Finches

Harold enjoys Seed blocks and flavored suet with nuts in it.

Harold also enjoys waking me from my nap in front of my camp fire

This is Harold's friend Gus... he is just a bully and a seed hog

I have several different Woodpeckers I photograph each one has their own personality and a few like to be waited on, they can be such Divas

Harold and Gus ... now they have a fan more!
With good food on your palm they will come to you. But they are very picky and sort through the food. Every piece they don't like they throw away.
