No picky eaters allowed!

All photos by Ned Harris 5/8/2015

Both male (red spot on head) and female (no red spot) Gila Woodpeckers feed their nestlings. Ned captured both parents bringing food to the nest that they made (and always make) in the middle third of the Saguaro cactus. (Any holes you see at the top of a Saguaro are made by Gilded Flickers.)
