Babe in the Woods

Quick post today.... we're thrilled that lil' birds are being born and raised in our woods. The LoveNest's newest arrival is this immature Red-Bellied Woodpecker.

Lisa observed the young one's mother teaching it how to feed - using our peanut feeder as a training device! The little one still has a lot to learn, however. It stays at the feeder, chowing down, even when we walk by the window or snap a picture. A bit too trusting. Mommy needs to tell (him? her?) that there are dangers out there...
