20160531 End of May report on Hairy Woodpecker family

We stopped to listen to the family on Tuesday May 31 and were rewarded by some sneak peeks at beaks:

Mom arrived to a cacophony of eager cheeps:

P1270476-1

After mother leaves a little one peers out with one eye…

P1270532-1-3

A little further …

P1270523-1

Then a good look outside at a guy with a long lens!

P1270502-1

I suspect that this family is close to fledging.    We shall have to monitor the nest closely now.

    • Hi Krys,
      Yesterday, June 4th, I couldn’t hear any cheep cheep so I think that they might have fledged.
