Daddy feeding Chicks

775 15


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.
