Whata Smile – 06.12.07
Ever since getting back from our OR Coast DLWS, Jake & I have been over at our favorite locale photographing the nesting birds. Some fledged while we were gone, but most are just starting to make their first appearances. While the Sapsucker young are too little to peak out the hole, these Red-shafted Flicker kids have no problem. About a week old, they climb over each other to get to the hole to get feed. While not the cutest yet (far from it actually), it is great fun watching and photographing them. We’ll spend the next couple of weeks with them, that’s for sure!
