Pic of the Day

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.

Bark Butter is a product produced by Wild Birds Unlimited.  It is the best way to attract woodpeckers to your feeders.  Click here:, to find out more about “Bark Butter.”
