Downy Woodpecker Still Nursing


Downy Woodpecker Still Nursing

I knew that the new feeding table attracted Juncos to the garden but this sight was something. Two downy woodpeckers and then when the mother started feeding the baby!!! I love that my garden is safe haven for the first flights. What a sight!

Thank you all for the comments. I was more than overjoyed, event of the summer for me! :-) I have stopped in at the sister site, just haven't got things going. I'm barely getting things posted here these days with summer and work. I was saving this but just couldn't hold on any longer. :-) I'll see you at I spy a bird soon though. :-)

Oh, thank you. I'm astounded myself. I wouldn't have thought in my wildest that a mother would bring a chick to a feeder like this. Welcome surprise. :-) I'm so glad to get to share it too.

Thank you PP. I loved these visits. Only a few to treasure.

You are so lucky to have been able to watch the Mother actually feeding her chick and to be able to catch it on camera, I think its fantastic ;0))

I do agree PP. I couldn't believe my eyes, even for hours afterwards. The juncos brought the babies to the table and fed them there too. I couldn't get a clear shot. I do hope that this occurs for years to come.
