My New Column: Downys at 'Wrong' Feeder

My latest column for The Record is about the increase in Downy Woodpeckers being seen at hummingbird feeders in North Jersey -- with a lot of help from readers and Fyke e-mail list folks.

I submitted three images to The Record. They are posted here in alphabetical order. (Thank you, Loren, Tom and Mary, and others who answered my request for photos and info.)

The link is here.
