Finally! I was able to get close enough to get some decent shots of both the male and female. I've never seen them feeding together.
I prefer bird pictues when they are not at the feeders but more in a natural setting. I am posting a couple, one of each at the feeder so you can see the male has a red spot on the back of his head. Otherwise the male and female look alike.
The Hairy Woodpecker is similar to the Downy Woodpecker but a little larger and has a longer bill.
REVISION:--I originally thought the woodpecker was a "Hairy" but I posted on the POTN bird forum and was informed that this is a picture of the "Downey" woodpecker.

I couldn't find the original photo so some info is missing on this one.

This photo has been straightened and cropped.
This one is obviously out of focus but I wanted to post to hopefully get some feedback on how I could have gotten a better shot other than the focus part.

All of these have had some post processing mostly just for lighting and contrast.
I'm not exactly sure what I was going for with these just trying to get something different. I'm always looking for an artistic angle. I really was trying to get a neat shot with the pillars but that didn't happen.
This church has one side with windows and pillars all evenly spaced with lighting behind the pillars. It looks really cool at night and I wanted to capture it in a photograph but I'm afraid these just aren't what I was hoping for. I'll have to go back and try again sometime. If anyone has some suggestions, that would be great.
