Downy Woodpecker

What do you get if you cross a woodpecker with a carrier pigeon ?

A bird who knocks before delivering its message !

Interesting Fact: The Downy Woodpecker eats foods that larger woodpeckers cannot reach, such as insects living on or in the stems of weeds. You may see them hammering at goldenrod galls to extract the fly larvae inside. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Downy_Woodpecker/lifehistory )
