  1. Hi Ethan,

    I have a question for you I have a downy woodpecker that has been around my my place for nearly 2 yrs. This Past summer it had a partner, of which I haven’t seen them together lately at all.
    Yesterday I was very surprised when I saw it at the birdfeeder with a much smaller identical one. I was able to observe them for some time. The smaller one was approx just a titch over half the size of the regular bird.

    I’m inclined to think it is a “youth” … but this late in the year?… is this normal?….or something I don’t know?

    1. Josiah has a point, they could be Hairy Woodpeckers and then this new one is a Downy.
      Do you have photos? If so, I would love to see them, and it may help me ID your bird.

      Merry Christmas!
