[CT Birds] Downy versus Hummer

I am having a bit of a problem at my hummer feeder: a downy woodpecker has
parked itself on the feeder and is either eating small insects or drinking
the nectar...the hummers are chased away. I don't see any obvious ants, and
do have an ant guard, so I'm not sure what the downy is after. I am going
to put out some suet in hopes of luring him away. Anyone else have this
experience?
