For almost a week now, I’ve watched a pair of downy woodpeckers perform a little feeding ritual. Every day, the little male takes pieces from the suet feeder and feeds it to the female. It happens so regularly that I have even been able to take photos.
Also for quite some time, I’ve watched a pair of cardinals frequent my feeders, though I’ve never been able to photograph them together. Then this afternoon, I witnessed the same feeding ritual with this pair as I’ve seen with the woodpeckers. It was the sweetest thing. The bad news is that I couldn’t get a photo of him feeding her. The good news is that I got their photo together (finally). While working from home has been adjustment, getting to learn about and watch my feathered neighbors has been such a joy.
Pretty little girl.
