Henry Has a Boy!

Look at that!

Henry is hanging upside down to feed on a suet cake that is under the roof. Many of you may remember my Starling Bully problem….all starlings, no woodpecker. Shellmo gave me a great idea, she told me to buy this neat-o feeder because the starlings can’t hang upside down and won’t be interested in the suet.
She was right! Thanks Shellmo!

It did take two months for me to see a woodpecker actually use it, but then I noticed something else….
Henry brought a young male downy with him!!!
Henry’s a daddy!

Go Henry, go henry, you the man…

Here’s a bad photo, but you get the idea. Henry would take some suet, fly to the walnut tree and feed his son!
I am so proud of him!

Oh buy the way, I was looking through my window and the markings you see is cat snot.
Lots and lots of cat snot on my window.
😦

Anyway, the first person to comment can name Henry and Stella’s son.
Good Luck!
