I love it when we get a variety of birds at the feeders. It is also neat to see the pairs of male and female coming in so you can see the differences. Here is a female downy woodpecker waiting her turn for some suet. The only visible difference between male and female seems to be the red patch that the male has on the back of its head. I saw her mate (probably eating at this point) but didn’t get a shot of him this time.
