Hoffmann's Woodpecker - Laguna de Apoyo, NI

This mother woodpecker was taking good care of the youngin's in this dead end branch. The hole was well positioned making sure that it was protected from the rain and far enough up the tree that it was not accessible from the ground. This was next to Casa Marimba on Laguna de Apoyo in a lot that looked like it was vacant for some time. The offering that she is bringing to her offspring is a caterpillar which the Hoffmann's woodpeckers make part of their diet but also eat fruit like bananas and figs.
