Today, I bring you an update on the Red-bellied Woodpecker fledgling's progress, shedding light on its remarkable transformation and newfound confidence.
I had a pair of Carolina Chickadees nest in one of my nest boxes this spring. This birdhouse is near my driveway and when I drove by I noticed this Carolina Chickadee fledgling looking out. I parked and got this photo. I can see this birdhouse from inside my house and I knew this fledgling would leave the nest soon. About 30 minutes later, I saw it fly to a nearby tree. I could hear the parents nearby. Later on I noticed another fledgling leave the nest. I’m not sure how many were in the birdhouse.
How I Got The Shot – Carolina Chickadee Fledgling
I was hand holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
