She Brought Him For Breakfast!

The female Pileated Woodpecker brought the young male to the suet feeder this morning - the second time, but this time I got a pretty good picture.

He's already figured out how to get food from the feeder, but he'd rather mom do it.

They are impressive birds, for sure.


  1. A few years ago, Gerard and I went on a hike just outside of Ottawa and saw a Pileated Woodpecker, well first we heard her...we followed her and she led us to her nest. There were two little ones with their heads peeking out way way up in a tree. What a thrill that was. We went back the next morning when the light would be better and Gerard got some nice shots of the babies.
    I really enjoy your blog. Joceline
