A woodpecker was at one of the feeders this morning.
She stayed for about a half hour, hanging on the feeder, and
getting food off and on.

She
didn't register any startle response, like more mature birds do. I'm thinking she was a baby, because of that. Also, her tummy has a lot of spots on it, and older redbellied woodpeckers don't have that marking.

LATER>>>>Her mother brought her a cap and scarf, since it was pretty cold today.
:cool:

I know, she was very motherly.

I really was surprised at how long this bird stayed at the feeder!

Great picture.

I love using my zoom lens, and taking wildlife shots.
it's nice to be able to capture something forever, without hurting it one bit.:heart:
