Nest building

I have been watching the nest building of a pair of red bellied woodpeckers.

The mom is on the nest but sadly the male has not returned in 2 days.
What do you think is up?
Can the mom survive?

woodpecker pecking at car windows??
by: Paige

Now the mother wood pecker can not stop pecking on the windows of a car parked near her nest. She will not stop....
What causes this odd panic of pecking at the darkened windows??

Red Robin nest by my front door
by: Paige

Can u believe it, after worrying about the red bellied nest thankfully the couple are tending their nest so nicely. After my morning walk I heard some chirping by my front door....... Can u believe it a robins nest in the ONE tree in my development...... I am a proud MAMA, I did put 2 slices of bread tucked into the tree to celebrate their goodness. How sweet it is...........Nature is amazing.........

by: Anonymous

My stress is lifted the male bird returned after 3 days.
Now the worry is they female and male took off leaving the nest.
What next?
