Ruby Tuesday

A feathered ruby for today...

A downy woodpecker takes the easy road to snacks at a suet feeder.  OK, it is the hard way to do it but he's too big to get inside the mesh like the smaller birds can.

More red can be seen on Mary T's Ruby Tuesday meme...go here.

Not only is he sporting just the right amount of red, he's industrious.

Hanging on like that, and with a little red hat that makes him a candidate for RT, he definitely deserves some food!
happy RT!

Persistant little fellow, isn't he? Cute too.

Guess he's not only getting food, but also doing daily exercise!

Beautiful bird -- and a marvelous shot of him! You do nice work.

Hehehe! I guess the treats are good enough to eat upside down. :)

it's funny the woodpeckers have just started visiting us again for the winter this week. They are lovely looking birdies I think,
