If you live anywhere within the United States besides Hawaii, chances are that you have encountered the Downey at one time or another. They are year-round inhabitants of every continental U.S. region and even found in Alaska. They are well accustomed to living around people and eating from feeders.
Primarily an insect eater, the Downey woodpecker also loves fruit…especially mulberries.
