The backyard is bursting with babies these days!
And one of the many hungry mouths to feed is a young Red-bellied Woodpecker.
The other day, Mom left him high up in the pine tree where he was well concealed, and gave him clear instructions to stay put while she made a fast food flight.
Well, needless to say, he didn’t obey! As soon as she left, he proceeded to move ten feet lower and one tree closer…
…and then a moment later, he flew over to wait for her on the bark butter branch.
She returned with a beakful of food for this hungry little guy…
…and then left him squawking for more while she flew off for seconds.
Never a dull moment when there are baby birds around!

Wonderful photos, you seem to have a front row seat😊
I did indeed!
I always marvel at the shots you get of the babies being fed by parents right in your own back yard.What a special treat that is:-)
It is a treat for sure!
Fantastic pictures! It is such a great time to be out and you have captured it wonderfully.
It is also a loud time to be out!
He better learn to mind his mama and stay safe. It’s a big dangerous world out there for baby birds.
Kids these days!
You really have a gift for telling a story with your photos, Kathy, we love it!
