“My” Woodpecker


Today I found out the woodpeckers have babies right there in the tree. I heard the babies beeping loudly already yesterday and the day before but thought they were further up in the tree or even in an other tree.

Today I saw the woodpecker coming with food in her/his beak. The babies screaming in hunger for their food. I now understand that yesterday when I saw the woodpecker sticking her/his head into the hole in the trunk she/he was feeding the babies. They didn’t make any sound because of eating.  And the ra-ta-ta-ta probably came from the other woodpecker somewhere nearby.

Anyway, I think I have enough of pictures of the woodpecker(s).  I leave them to live their life in peace and quiet from me and my camera and wish them all the best for the future.
