Black-backed Woodpecker Feeding Young

MW8A3533


Evening folks…as I stated in last night's post, one of the main reasons for heading up north was to photograph the uncommon woodpecker of the northern coniferous forests, the Black-backed Woodpecker. The little ones are starting to peek their heads out a bit to be fed by the parents. We were able to get great views as the male and the female brought food to the begging youngsters. I hope to go up one more time before they fledge if time permits.

Evening folks…just got back today from a great show in Meredith over the long weekend! Then we stayed a few days in the Franconia area for a bit of photography. While there I had the opportunity to photograph this pair of birds. It's not a rare bird but uncommon to see, then to be able photograph a nesting cavity was a great treat….Happy
