Zellene reported this behavior last month, and yesterday I had a female downy woodpecker sipping nectar from the hummingbird feeder in my yard. This is a saucer style feeder with perches rather than the inverted bottle style which only takes birds that hover. Sometimes the hummingbirds hover, sometimes they perch. The woodpecker was perched. Though it rained yesterday, it has been very dry, so maybe she was just looking for a drink of any kind.
