Another Hungry Mouth To Feed

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!
