This afternoon I had hoped to pop over to my Magic Duck Pond, but a steady rain was falling and the skies were quite dark, so I stayed home.... However, I was rewarded by the Pileated family out back. All 4 were here, but the main players were Dad and the 2 kids.... (And I am thinking today that both offspring are males. ) The red colouration on the jaw line is beginning to form just faintly, but this indicates they are males.
One of the young woodpeckers was actually getting some peanuts on his own ...but Dad was still stuffing both young ones with peanuts. Dad also made 2 trips to the ground below where there is a water dish (for the squirrels) That peanut feeder is worth its weight in GOLD! :)) Terry ...
