This spring a pair of Northern Flicker woodpeckers hammered out a nest hole in the trunk of a tree near Songo Pond in Albany. Several weeks later, they began bringing food to the nest, and as each parent arrived, a beak poked out of the hole. It wasn’t long before an entire head became visible, as the lone baby squawked incessantly for more food. Here, the youngster keeps an eye out for the next meal. Two days after this photo was taken, the young bird flew the nest for good.
