PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/15/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.
Notes: Over the last two or three days I had been hearing what sounded like a young Flicker giving a single note call. It dawned on my this morning that the sound was emanating from basically the same location each time. Upon further examination, there is an old Silver Maple Tree in my next-door neighbor’s backyard with a fresh hole carved in it. The hole had a radius of about four inches and out of it stuck a little brown woodpecker with a mustache mark on each cheek. It was a baby male Flicker! So I grabbed my camera gear and found the best vintage point possible. Both of the adults came by to drop-off some food, about every fifteen minutes or so. At first I thought there was only one chick, but later noticed at least one other youngster, back in the darkness of the nest cavity. Despite the unusual swings in the weather this spring, this was a good reminder that the breeding season is in full swing for our local birds. In the state of Virginia, a five year survey of breeding birds is currently underway. This is know as the Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2), which was conducted once previously in the late 1980s. The VABBA2 has entered its second year of this five year survey. This breeding bird activity will be recorded in the VABBA2 portal on eBird. Do you atlas?
