Hey Mom, Look What I Found!

The juvenile Red Bellied Woodpecker activity has been in full effect in my backyard this weekend. I've identified two juveniles after the recent departure from their nest. The adults are feeding the juveniles regularly from the suet and peanuts out of the feeder.

Today one of the juveniles made his way down to the top of the feeder to find out what it had to offer. They have not been able to get the hang of coordinated flight to get on the suet log or peanut feeder just yet!




I also noticed while taking these pictures that this juvenile has started to get a little red tinge of color on the crown of his head. Guess that this juveniles turns out to be a little baby boy!




Thanks for visiting! Good Birding and God Bless.

I work at a drug rehab in Oklahoma and I recall having seen this bird but didn't know what it was. Thanks now I do.
