This Red-bellied Woodpecker has been visiting our seed feeder since late Spring. A few days ago, I noticed a different chirping and saw it brought a guest. Likely a newly fledged baby came with the parent.
First picture: The fledgeling waiting for its parent to feed it.
Second photograph: The parent, a male red-bellied woodpecker, picked a sunflower seed and shelled it for the young bird. Note the seed in the beak.
I tried to photograph the feeding process, but by the time I added my 2Xii, the young bird moved behind the tree trunk.
For the first photo, I used 5d3 with 70-200 LII, handheld. the second was taken with my 2Xii, also handheld. Neither was cropped.
