This cute female Downy Woodpecker was hunkered down, but in view of the feeder.

Another shot through the window capture.

I'm late on posting, and commenting, because after doing a Windows Update it locked up my computer. So It spent several hours in the shop getting fixed. He told me that he is getting alot of computers brought in because of the update.

I hope it does not happen to you, if you update.

Thank you for commenting!

Probably from the cold Sandi - Very good shot. I saw on Tv today the "horrible" temperatures and the nightmare conditions with 4 feet and more of snow in some parts of the U.S. and Canada

I always loved woodpecker images and this is a very nice one Sandi. I can't recall all their names and will not even attempt that. You are really raking those cute animals in.

This is a cute winter shot Sandi - I love woodpeckers and this one is handling the cold smartly. I hunkered down today as well as we have more snow.

Darn fine for a through-a-window shot. I run Macs so I don't really have the problems inherent in Windows platforms... I can only commiserate through my imagination.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

He is definitely "hunkered down" Tigz. My computer has been wanting to update, but I haven't yet. I probably won't after reading about your experience. You got it fixed in good time.
Good shot for all the cold weather.

Great shot Tigs the little guy looks really cold (do woodpeckers use the bird feeder? ...just a though).

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Sitting pretty and being so patient for her turn. Maybe she's a little cool fluffing up her body
