Babies in the nest.

Mom or Dad checking on the little ones.
A couple of these intense moments during my watch. This one had one starling come in while parents were out getting food. l could here a lot of chattering from the young inside. Thinking it was Mom or Dad back with food. Luckily nothing happened.

Parent bird back to save the day.

May 14th.

Female in the nest cavity.


Today l witnessed the male red headed woodpecker building the nest. He built this nest over a weeks time and the female rejected it. He then moved to the other side of this same tree and built another nest that she readily moved into. She was always close by the male as he was busy building.
