Birding from my Window

This is a male Downy Woodpecker at our suet feeder this morning. It's a cold and wet here in Salem, which lends its self to count birds from the comforts of my living room window.  It also fits right in with eBird's November challenge and drawing, which this month is to submit 15 complete observation lists for the same location.  I thought about this at the first of the month and decided that observations from my own yard would the easiest way to assure 15 lists for the same location. I've been doing what known as a stationary count, which means you are stationary at one point for a subscribed amount of time.  Todays stationary count was for ten minutes and it produced the following observation list:
 Downey Woodpecker - 1
Western Scrub-Jay - 1
Black-capped Chickadee - 1
Dark-eyed Junco - 3
Song Sparrow - 1
House Finch - 3
Pine Siskin - 4
House Sparrow - 1
