Hairy Woodpeckers successfully nested in Audubon Park

Today I noticed two Hairy Woodpeckers in the large live oaks along the bayou in Audubon Park, behaving like an adult and a newly fledged juvenile- lots of soft, short vocalizations.

This is unusual in that Hairy Woodpeckers are scarce as nesters in urban New Orleans.

The birds were also much easier to approach than Hairies are generally.

Good deal!
