|Hairy Woodpecker, Picoides villosus|
Horse Cove; Gureley, Alabama
I shot this female downy about a month ago near my bird feeders. This female and her mate have successfully hatched a brood, and is bringing them to my bark butter feeder. Yesterday I saw a young male being fed by the adult male. Most species of birds raise a couple of broods here in North Alabama. I suspect that within a few weeks the adults will be back on the nest.
