Description

These two woodpeckers (I know the one on the right is a downy) are feeding on two suet feeders about 3 feet apart. Both the Hairy and the Downy woodpeckers are able to sometimes share opposite sides of the same suet feeder. They feed for long periods at the suet feeders. Seeing two different woodpeckers like these two is common.
