May 30, 2008. Red-bellied Woodpecker carrying winter moth larvae to nest hole. Although the maple leaves are out of focus, you can easily see that the leaves are fairly chewed up. I never was able to see chicks leaning out of the hole, but my previous records of Red-bellies in this area have them fledging within a day or two or June 6.

July 25, 2008, adult bringing unknown larvae to the nest hole. Maple leaves are now brown and ratty where the winter moth chewed them up.

August 4 - the chicks are begging from the hole entrance. I have found that when they get to this point they leave the nest within two or three days.

I like this picture and the next one because you can tell that it's two different chicks from the red on the head.
