The baby Downy Woodpeckers are too adorable for words. (Sorry about the sentimentality!)
The freshly fledged Downys are tiny, which is apparent if you can reference them compared to an object with known dimensions, like this suet feeder.
Even these tender babes are forced to fight off the sparrows if they want to eat, however.
At first she was taken aback by the arrival of company at the suet feeder. Then she was attacked.
When the young woodpecker fought back, the sparrows retreated. She was able to get a few bites of food, anyway.
