Male Downy Pecks Away- Video

You'll notice that our phone rings just a second after the bird flies away. I just wonder if it could somehow sense the radio signal and was scared by that. It is probably just a coincidence. If your phone sounds like ours, don't get alarmed, it is just the video. I'm not trying to call you!



  1. He is certainly enjoying that suet! Hmmm...maybe he thought it was his phone ringing :-)

  2. I always enjoy your birdie video and web cam. Thinking about a new cam at the house? BTW, I finally finished the painting of little pond outlet in Maine. Thanks so much for letting me use it! I also emailed you, when you have time check it out.

  3. stunning video! :)

  4. Cool little video (& bird, of course!)

  5. Thanks everyone!

    Chris, I have thought about doing the bird cam, but I haven't figured out how I'm going to do it. The first step I've got down- getting birds to come close to the house. That took a while. Chris- the painting looks great, what a great team we make! :)

    Thanks Tom...Thanks again for telling me about blip way back when...

    Thanks Lana- Maybe next will be a squirrel video.

    Thanks nature nut!

  6. It’s fascinating to see the watchfulness of wildlife even when provided with free food. A reminder of life’s fragile preciousness. Thanks for this fine winter glimpse of a Downy Woodpecker.
