Fledgling

The baby woodpeckers have left their nest. We miss them.

Awe, you had baby woodpeckers?? How cool, now they're off and pecking on someone else's tree.

They'll probably come back to have babies of their own someday!

Love the contrast of the bird's head to the birch bark. Did you use zoom or were you allowed to sneak in close?

Do they make those holes in your trees? We have woodpeckers that like to peck at our gutters and chimney cover. It sounds like a jack hammer. Luckily, I think, they don't touch our trees.
They are pretty birds to be sure though.

I just read Rachel's post before yours and couldn't help but see the correlation between them both!! How exciting for them but how much you must miss them!! Hope all is well with you guys!
Love,
Bryce and Heather

Ahhh, so sweet! I know what you mean, we have had a pair of bright yellow birds with a nest here on the house and we are missing them too! :D

How nice it must have been to have then so close. Maybe they'll come again next year.

@Miko's Girl: I was able to sneak in very close--within a few feet. The hole is about eye level and right next to the sidewalk.
@Bryce and Heather: You are right! My subconscious must have been talking.

Oh my gosh, that is such an amazing photo. I love everything about it and that little birdie is adorable!

Valerie said...

Love the colors on the bird. You are so good at photography.

What a great photo. We love to bird watch in our yard.

Sweet. It is sad to see them fly away. My hummingbirds leave the nest but stay around the yard and then come back every year.

Oh my goodness, Julie. This is amazing. I love these birds. They are quite elusive around here. :)
