OK, a group of Downy Woodpeckers is probably not called a “bunch,” but at any rate, here’s a photo I took a few days ago of four of them around a single suet feeder. This is the same feeder/tree that attracted two Brown Creepers a few weeks ago. Interestingly enough, the Downys all seem to be female. (Where was that bar when I was in my 20s? Ha.)
I’ve seen Downys come and go at a suet cake and perch nearby, but never 4 in one tree.
Not the best quality photo, but a pretty neat sighting.
