Killer Chickadee

I was hanging around the suet feeder at Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary, a Mass Audubon refuge, waiting for woodpeckers. I noticed that chickadees were sampling the suet. Chickadees are meat eaters. Who knew?

And the woodpeckers also came around. The Red-bellied Woodpecker is so-named for the patch of red on the...back of its neck? No, really there is a patch on its belly that you can't see most of the time because woodpeckers usually have their belly up against something. There is a woodpecker that is named for its red head, but this isn't it:

There also were a couple of Downy woodpeckers.
