New Kids in the Neighborhood

After watching the adults trade incubation shifts for a while it appears that we have some new baby Hairy Woodpeckers in the backyard. This evening while tending to the barbecue I noticed both parents delivering food to the nest hole. The photo below shows the female delivering a grub of some sort to the cavity. Neither parent was spending much time in the cavity but both were going all the way in to deliver the food. Soon I suspect we will have little Hairy Woodpeckers peeking out of the hole and begging for food.
