For several summers, there has been a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers nesting in the woods somewhere near our house. I can hear them calling throughout the area but I have not been able to find their nest. Now that this year’s chicks have fledged, the parents (mainly the male) have been bringing them to our feeders throughout the day for snacks. They are feeding on peanut butter, suet, and sunflower seed chips. II had been trying to get pictures of them outside but they are pretty spooky, so I gave up and snapped a few pictures through the kitchen window of the male feeding two chicks sunflower chips.
