Chickadees of course are the most common and the boldest as I sat on the deck. They were always flitting back and forth from the feeders, while the redpolls and siskins took a long time for them to gain my trust and start feeding.

A Downy Woodpecker came around later on a close branch, and I got a pretty good photo.
Quite the bird! It's a lifer for me, and I didn't expect to see it here in the winter, nevermind at our feeder.
I am planning to make some new posts soon, the final part of the Churchill trip, a post about my field guides, and I should be making others. So stay tuned!
