Daddy feeding Chicks
by watson_123

Happy Fathers Day to all you hard working Dads out there putting food on the table and teaching your kids life lessons. It was last year I took this photo of a Pileated Woodpecker male feeding his chicks. I observed this family last year for a couple of weeks sitting in the woods quietly for hours at a time and noticed it was the Dad that came in every single time to feed these babies, as well I got to see him clean their dirt from the nest cavity once. He was also the one that encouraged them all to fledge from the nest.

Hi. Thanks for the compliment. No, this fence is not mine. I'm surrounded by privacy fence and chain link, lol.

terrific shot. I dream of doing a "moving" shot with that précision and sharp focus. We can easily.make a poster form that quality of shot.

Cool shot - love fences. I was lucky to help put a Chilcotin log fence up in the territory - and I even had a cowboy teach me how to use fencing wire so the horses do not knock off the logs. I love the work. Did you make this one?
