One of the boys asking his mum why she does not feed him. She wants him to leave the nest, that’s why.

Male black woodpecker chick peeping out of the nesthole. It would not be long before it would leave the nest. Two boys are in the nesthole, peeping out. Later on I see a girl too, but she is much shyer.

Big brown hairy balls, just standing there and doing nothing.

Or they would be screaming and begging for food. See my next blog.
