Young red headed woodpeckers ,August.

Playing around the post across the street made for some good finding food experiences. This post seemed to have good juicy spiders hiding in the cracks. Parents were here a lot with the little ones doing feeding exercises.
The fight was on to who got the spiders. This is the day l found out my calculations were correct in number of babies. While these two older ones were at it on the post here l heard and saw the 3rd baby over in a tree. This baby was fed much longer than these two who were on there own feeding at this point. But of coarse still wanting to be fed once in a while. Mom & Dad were kept very busy. They always come in the spring fresh and beautiful and by fall ,look a bit worse for wear.
