Project: Backyard Pishing
Location: Private Residence, Talking Rock, Pickens County, North Georgia
Taken this afternoon (Monday, 2012.05.07) by hanging out the window. To the best of my knowledge, this is a Hairy Woodpecker (Dendrocopos villosus, HAWO) that is falling under the category of Nest Watch right now.
The parent in the video is loading up from the nugget feeder (peanuts and sunflower seeds). There are at least two fledglings following her ALL around the yard as of this morning. This time of the year, the "Calgon take me away" mantra runs through my head often. Comes from any time of day seeing some species of babies staying hot on the trail of their parents every time the parents move. :))
