RE: [BirdYak] Re: White headed woodpecker on Nile Creek
- Yup, a friend of hers called me to report the nest and I checked it this
week. There are 2 young that I could see in the cavity, both appear to be
females. Today they are about 23-25 days old so they should fledge in a
few days. I drove by that snag at least 2x a week and I know of that pair
that I have monitored in past year, but I never thought to nest search that
far down the road towards the houses. Now I know!

bird, sitting on the deck of her house with a spotting scope set up, eating
pizza and drinking wine as we watched the parents bring food to the
nestlings that were almost as large as the adults. The immatures would hang
way out of the hole, one at a time, and peep loudly for another meal. The
landowner told us this is a nest being monitored by Jeff Zozma.
