A few weeks ago I had a great morning at Mead Gardens, and these two Downy Woodpeckers were a big reason why. One is a fledgling and the other its mother, and they were fluttering about from tree to tree. The mom was collecting food for the fledgling, which was trying its best to learn the fine art of drumming. At one point, it was really fun to watch the fledgling try, and then the parent come by to work on the same location to finish the task for the fledgling.
How lucky you were to view this fledgling/adult interaction! Wonderful photographs, as always, Scott!ReplyDelete
