Not-so-baby Red-Bellied Woodpecker

I've been watching a pair of Red-bellied woodpeckers this spring.   They were busy excavating the nest and preparing.  It seemed certain that the nest had babies,  but I began to doubt if this was indeed the nest.  No babies were seen ... until today.

It seems there is just one, but it is difficult to tell if there are others behind or below this one.  They built this nest deep.  Earlier in the year they could be heard working on it, but not seen until popping their head out to drop debris.  The depth might be why babies were not visible until now.
As I watched this one chirp and beg for food, I recognized the cry from other walks.  Walks spent wondering - where are the babies?  There they are!

Hope you enjoyed!
