red-bellied woodpecker tree hole

I’ve visited this tree hole a few times hoping to spot a pileated woodpecker, but always came up empty. Today I saw the true homeowners, red-bellied woodpeckers – not the large bird I was hoping for, but still very cool. Every few minutes, mom or dad would show up with insects or berries to feed the babies hidden inside.
