What The Heck??

I must confess, I have seen many odd things with the backyard bird community.  But this is a new behavior for me.  Looking at today's BirdCam output I was startled to see a Red Bellied Woodpecker, picking sunflower seeds, from a tube feeder.  These characters rarely pick for seeds (I do see Downys do it a bit more often) and I can't ever recall seeing an RBW at a tube feeder.  There is plenty of suet to be had, so perhaps our friend here needed a little change of diet.  One really never knows what goes on in their minds.  So another "myth" busted.  Will wonders never cease!
