It's winter time in western NY, on the shores of Lake Ontario. With lake effect snows, of course. We are just close enough to get some lake effect here, although the other side of the bay gets much more. Feed the birds, anyone?

We lost the trees in our backyard last winter and took them down this summer. That doesn't seem to have discouraged the downy woodpecker(s)we had last year though.

It seemed there was always a downy out there, everytime I looked. Then one day, I looked at just the right time and realized there were at least 3 downies around; 2 M and 1 F. They were all there in the tree at the same time for once.
