What’s the Fuss?

I walked outside this afternoon, hoping to steal a few moments to take some butterfly pictures in the front yard.  These two lovelies seemed more than happy to flutter about for my lens.

I had only managed to fire off a few shots when I heard quite a ruckus rising up from beyond the backyard fence.  Glancing that direction, I saw the beautiful Red-headed Woodpecker feeding its baby in the tree-tops.

I was too far away to capture a clear image, but it was still fun to watch the action take place.  Baby birds put up quite a fuss, but they are fascinating to watch.

    Baby birds put up just as much of a noise when they’re hungry as baby people do, and it certainly gets the parents attention in both cases!

  3. Wonderful photos! It’s quite rare to see woodpeckers where we are, so enjoyed your post.
