Downy Woodpecker at nest
Feeding little ones which could be heard calling for the parents to feed them.
Bluebird baby with daddy
Bluebird pair pinned down a female bluebird that came into their territory. After watching the two give the outsider several pecks, I intervened. The outsider lingered around the area for some time. The pair is feeding six babies, and the female has second clutch eggs in the nest box. Aggressive bluebirds are the best to have in your boxes.

It's not often that you can sneak up on a sleeping fox!

This image was backlit, it had a lot of noise, and the background was distracting. I decided to use texture as a way to help with some of these issues.
