How to Feed a Baby Woodpecker

One of the coolest things we got to watch on our camping trip last weekend was a woodpecker feeding her babies

She was a bit suspicious of us, so if we were making any noise she'd go land on a different tree and wait till we shut up and sat still before she went to the tree with her babies.

Thanks for stopping to check out my blog. I love your photos of the mommy woodpecker feeding her babies. It is rare that we get to see such a treat and even more rare that a camera is available to snap a pic. Looking forward to reading more of your posts. My in-laws are in Sequim, WA. Beautiful country up there.
