Chilly Baby Woodpecker
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.

Great Picture. What a good mother to dress her baby warmly.

I know, she was very motherly.

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