An ode to Fathers from Archbold Biological Station filmed, edited, and written by Into Nature Films. This Red-bellied Woodpecker father is doing his best to raise the next generation in the pine forest of Red Hill at Archbold Biological Station. Watch the nestling poke its head out and demand a snack. Finally, Dad appears with fresh seeds for his little one. Then, the ever protective father perches on top of the snag while the nestling looks out the window.
Happy Father’s Day.
