Description

I was photographing the Pileated Woodpecker on the peanut butter suet feeder when the Downy Woodpecker dropped down from a sugar maple branch to the feeder’s opposite side. I thought the Pileated would chase the Downy away, but she didn’t. I thought it quite a rarity to be able to photograph Ohio’s smallest and largest woodpecker feeding simultaneously on the same feeder.

Small And Large

Ohio's smallest and largest woodpeckers feeding together, female Downy and female Pileated.
