Seems like it’s time for these babes to be out flying on their own.
These Peckers chose a tree stump in our front yard to nest in.
I was wondering if mama is inside getting food from daddy for the baby woodpeckers.
She seems to be telling him a thing or two.
Our satellite internet has been extremely slow and uploading photos takes a lot of time. Sigh.
I had a couple projects with a twist on my agenda today and mowing the lawns is on the agenda for tomorrow. Hope to get around to any new posts in blogland on Wednesday evening. Half of July is in the record books. Hope it’s going well for you.

Hi Ellen, These are great photos. Sorry about your slow internet. Do be careful mowing the lawn. We’ve been painting the front porch columns early in the a.m. before the sun gets so hot.
Hello, cute captures of the woodpeckers being fed. Have a great day!
…wonderful pictures, our internet is like running a race in concrete shoes.
What awesome pictures of nature right in your dooryard! We have a huge pine that a woodpecker “ drilled” a significant hole in….now I’m wondering if there are babies inside!🤗👍
Great pictures of the wood pecker family. So fun to have that right in the yard.
Ellen – gorgeous shots. I imagine you might be right about that conversation! Wouldn’t you just love to know what they are saying? I can relate to your frustration with a slow internet connection. It doesn’t happen to me often, but it always seems to take place when I am short on time and just want to get something done. Sigh, indeed!
Ohh … its one thing to have a stump in your back yard, a bigger thing to have woodpeckers choose it as their ‘building site’ … and bigger yet to get the amazing photos you were able to capture ! What a thrill to be able to watch this little family grow up …. I hope you’ll be able to catch them leaving the nest !
Those are perfect photos of a Flicker parent and child! They are a type of woodpecker, but they screech really loud and like to drill on holllow things: trees, stumps, metal chimney pipes, poles anything that makes quite a large noise!!!! There are two kinds, one has yellow feathers in the wings and one has red feathers in the wings. Flickers are fun to watch “hunting” bugs from your lawn. Enjoy them, but don’t be too surprised by the loud noises they like to make.
Thank you for your comment and information Sue. These are the red feathered variety. We do enjoy watching them.
I see you have had some great entertainment there in the recent past! You captured it well!
Great photos of the woodpeckers in your yard. It’s fascinating to see their little haven in the tree stump which is quite low down near the ground. It’ll be interesting to see the babies when they fledge.
Such great pictures Ellen!!! It is so hard to believe that we are almost at the end of July 2019!!! Slow down …
Thanks for the thoughtful card Ellen. It was so nice to receive it. Hugs!
