After the mainly adult great spotted woodpeckers of my earlier blog post, now young birds on 10 June 2016 at the bird photography hide. Like this one, with the red cap typical for its age, on a birch tree.
Like the adult birds, the young woodpeckers liked bathing in the pool.
The fledgling woodpeckers had only very recently learned flying. They still depended on their parents for food. However, they already knew how to sit vertically on a tree trunk.
And how to hang horizontally under a branch.
Bye bye for now, young woodpeckers! There will be another blog post about you.
