A woodpecker nest discovered!
Oh, how happy we are! Yesterday we were on the road, when my friend called me and said, “Listen?” A truck passing by made me not hear anything, but a little later I heard! The sound of young birds, hungry young birds. And when I looked into the tree I was standing next to, I saw a perfectly round hole. Woodpeckers!! My friend, who is an excellent spotter, has discovered a woodpecker's nest! There may be no explanation that we went home to get our cameras right away.. And because the tree in question is on private property, asking the owner if we are allowed to photograph. That was no problem, so we back, and photographing from the car. Woodpeckers zijn namelijk schuwe vogels, en zoals vele vogels houden zij niet van een camera. By staying in the car and photographing from the car, we hope not to disturb the birds. We're talking here about the spotted Woodpecker. A bird smaller than I expected, also given the noise coming out of the nest. Father and mother Woodpecker do their best to provide the children with food, a beautiful sight! We'll check to see if the coast is clear before Mom or Dad plunges in. By the way, that's fast. Before you know it, they'll be gone.. The neatly round hole is big enough for mom and dad to slide through. It seems that the eggs have just hatched: the nest is well kept clean by the parents, and it seems that eggshells are being cleaned. It's hard work, such a nest full of children: Mom and Dad unload each other at a fast pace, and that sometimes means you have to wait for each other.... Hey, hurry up, I want to go in.! Yeah, I'm gonna.... (the picture is not sharp, the woodpecker was too fast!) Hey, hey, now I can get in.... The photo below is blurry, but indicates at what rate the parents pay off each other. ( My camera takes up to 60 photos per SECOND! ) One leaves, the other shoots up, into the nest. I've been told that in the nest there are 4 to 7 eggs, and so 4 to 7 young are now fighting for food. And again, a parent with an eggshell disappears, clearing up that mess! With a final cleanup picture I leave the nest for today. We will try to follow the nest, within three weeks the boy should fly out, we hope to be able to take a lot of pictures before that time.... Obviously, I don't reveal the place where we find this nest, we don't want to disturb the birds. The pictures are of course all taken by me with my Olympus OMD EM1-MRK 2, and not free to use. #naturephotography #spottedwoodpecker #nest #pretty #nognomed #thrilled #thrilledei
