Learning to Walk Up Sides of Trees

I was watching out my kitchen window at a mama Red Bellied
Woodpecker teaching her young one.
Poor thing was hanging on for dear life and a little shaky.

She was being so patient with it and coaxing it on.

Showing it how to peck at the tree and look or food.

I could not help but wish it was from one of the eggs I help
to rescue from the nasty Grackle this Spring.

Isn't it so fluffy and cute.
