Posts Tagged ‘fledglings’

The pair of juvenile male Pileated Woodpeckers in the woods behind my place, went for a training trip with Dad today. The two fledglings are both males, the third, a female, hangs out with her Mom all day. These babies were born in a second re-nest after a storm toppled their trees in late-June. The parents were brave and successful and the juveniles look healthy and strong; and none too soon. Warning, the photos are blurry from and incorrect shutter speed setting of 1/60th second – I was very angry with myself, used a Canon 50D set at f/11 and a Canon EF400L f/5.6 in low light with an ISO of 200 (bad planning) !!!!
