They grow quickly so please excuse us if we post too many photos of the baby woodpeckers.

Baby Ducks on Lake Nelson

Mother and Baby Ducks

The mother duck brings her six ducklings by often. They are growing very fast and have already learned how to jump back in the lake from our dock. They are now old enough so that some are developing an independent streak and no longer follow mom in a straight line.

Barn Swallows: Photos by Jim's wife




Just wanted to share this photo with you.
My wife took it yesterday in our back yard with her new camera.
They are barn swallows that return every year to the same box.

Red Bellied Woodpecker Feeding

Juvenile Red Bellied Woodpecker
Red Bellied Woodpecker Feeding

Well, no visible nests this spring, but we had a lot of woodpeckers and other birds coming and going with food. We could see them flying across the lake, and we hoped that eventually they would bring their young to us for all the good feed we offer. In this photo we have a male red bellied woodpecker feeding grape jelly to its young.
