Default Woodpeckers plus Odds'n Ends

The Red-bellied Woodpeckers I posted last week have fledged the nest. The adults were still feeding the chicks away from the nest site. Not a great photo but it documents the activity. Yesterday was slower then usual so I am just posting a few photos from Green Cay Wetlands and Wakodahatchee Wetlands.

These are great Ed. The duckweed is so thick, I have to wonder how the herons can know there's any prey within striking distance.

What a great series - full of that bright southern sunshine and amazing captures of the "critters" and their behaviors!

Our herons here seem to be sight-hunters, but I suppose they have great hearing as well...
