Woodpecker Eating My Hummingbird Food

10 posts in this topic

We have 2 Gilla Woodpeckers that come every morning and love to eat from our hummingbird feeder... I've never seen another bird any size do this so it's pretty impressive to see such a big bird doing it! Comment if this is a unique behavior or if other birds do this as well. Enjoy and Thanks!!

I have watched several Acorn Woodpeckers drinking from my mom's hummingbird feeders.

I have a bunch of starlings trying to drink from the nectar in my oriole feeder! They can't without falling off, but its funny to see them try. :)

i have a pair of Lewis's woodpeckers with 3 fledglings comeing to my feeders daily and several land on top of the necter feeders and hang upside down slurping necter. they also eat the strawberry and grape jam from the bowls and they have learned to hang on the tube feeder and reach around to eat from the ports for sunflower seeds and spanish peanuts

I've got a family of Hooded Orioles coming to my Hummingbird feeder now. They fight with the Anna's Hummingbirds over the nectar.
