Here's another shot of the little Hairy, he sure is growing up fast. He's finding the peanuts I put in the bark, but Dad is still feeding him too! He spends most of the day here in the yard.

He does blend in. But it looks like it's from living in a tree hole. When he no longer stays inside at night, his whiteswill show up better. :)

The nest must be in the neighborhood nearby. He sure likes pecking at those hidden peanuts, but now the jays, and grackles have discovered them too. I have to put out more, a few times a day.:cry:

Thanks Tekkie, I shoot from the open window, because the trees are only 10-15 feet away. Lots of shade, so tough to get some of these birds in the light.

Thanks Phil, he would be happy to hear that! I see him all day long when I'm home. I can hear his chirp from inside, so I go to the window to see how he's doing.:D

Thanks joayne, I just put a bunch more out, and the grackles are eating them. The grackles are taking over, and will chase the other birds from the water. Why can't we all just get along?:D

Ha :) even his face looks round... I think the Stellar Jay will not appreciate his affection for peanuts, his girth is beginning to rival that of the jay's... you may soon have the largest Hairy Woodpecker in the Grand Canyon.. a great pose and shot Steve, he is a beauty.

Thank you Lil, most of it's luck. I might hear him out there, then I grab the camera and shoot out the open window, and hope that he's in good light or that a branch is not in the way. He's a good poser, and will stay in one place for awhile, giving me time to shoot. A fine little model.:D
