What is she bringing the little woodpeckers to eat ? It`s baby chicks . Up until now they had only brought ants and caterpillars. Had to read it up if spotted woodpeckers are nest predaters , they are. Beobachtet in Börnste in einer Birke. Bis jetzt brachten sie nur Ameisen und Raupen . Im (Juni) füttert sie die kleinen Spechte mit ganz jungen Babyvögeln.
