......Dad always appeared to be rather frazzled (that's him on the left).
Perhaps he's a first-time father.
Dad collects some suet.....
While baby waits anxiously below.
If you click to enlarge you'll see that he appears to always have a worried expression on his face :) Due to our frequently rainy weather, he also often looked damp and bedraggled.
That's quite a mouth to feed!
More please, Daddy!
Here, she waits on the porch post on a foggy morning....
......but then decides to hurry the process along!
Sometimes the smaller Downy Woodpeckers would try for a turn at the suet. Dad was hanging underneath when this fella landed. He hopped up quickly and scared the wits out of the poor little guy.
Speaking of wet birds....here's the Red Bellied male woodpecker on a rainy afternoon.
Here's the little lady Red Belly. If they're a pair with a baby, we haven't seen it. The Red bellies are shyer than the Hairies and Downies. They fill their beaks and head for the hedgerow across the road.
All the woodies like sunflower seed too.
