Young Red-headed Woodpeckers!

After seeing Red-headed Woodpeckers numerous times at the end of my road, I was finally able to confirm that they are breeding in the area today. They used to be VERY hard to find around here, however I am seeing more and more of them.

Here is a pic I took this morning out the car window of an adult Red-headed Woodpecker after just feeding a juvenile. If you look closely, you can see the young one.

And here is a pic of the juvenile -

The sighting was entered in to the Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas II.
