Remember that Flower Shadows ends tomorrow! https://steemit.com/shadowphoto/@melinda010100/shadow-photo-contest-round-82-flower-shadows
It's the day before #featheredfriday and I like to put the reminder post up a day early so that participants have a spot to place their links. If you have an active #featheredfriday post that you put up earlier in the week feel free to post your link here and hopefully more people will stop by to see your birds!
I truly enjoy learning about the birds that live in your part of the world!
Here are a few photos that I took this week of the Hairy Woodpeckers that live here in Wisconsin year round. They seem to have had a successful hatch this year as there have been lots of young birds in my backyard trees.
Hairy Woodpeckers typically excavate their nests in a dead tree.
The cavity is usually bare except for a bed of wood chips at the bottom for the eggs and chicks to rest on. They have one brood of 3 to 6 chicks each year and their population numbers are listed as of 'low concern'.
I'm looking forward to seeing your #featherefriday posts!
