13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red-Bellied Woodpecker Family

I watched 2 juvenile Red-Bellied Woodpeckers leave the nest before this 3rd one poked it's head out, as it did so, both parents bombarded the tree with food, but the female stuck around, while the male flew away from the tree.
