Looking Out My Backdoor
As most of you know by now, if you come here often, I love birds. In winter, I hang suet and fill two feeders, one with mixed seed and one with shelled peanuts. The suet and peanuts are especially popular with woodpeckers, which rarely come around in the summer. Though that red bellied one is pretty fond of seeds, too.
Here's a look at the current residents:

Note the seeds flying in this shot. He shovels out whatever is in his way to get to the good stuff.
How annoying is that?
Last, and Maybe Least: Downy Woodpecker
It's a love/hate thing with these guys because of what they do to our trees:
