Last summer we had a large number of woodpecker parents bringing their fledglings to our suet feeders. This year not so much! I suspect that it has probably been too hot for the birds too around here. It certainly has been way too hot for us humans in the Pacific Northwest!
These Hairy Woodpeckers visited our garden many times every day.
Landing took practice, as did figuring out what to do at the feeder.
like all parents take their duties very seriously!
They were so much fun to watch.
