Woodpecker finch!

One of the first woodpecker finches we’ve seen. This juvenile was quite amusing, as it was following it’s mother around begging for food and perhaps learning how to search for insects. He didn’t do anything impressive with sticks or tools, sadly. P1090215

His mother, on the other hand, was quite a busy bird, and at one stage appeared to be using a piece of twine for something (not just nest material gathering) – as she would pull this twine with her bill, then hold it in her claw and further pull on it with her bill. Quite determined. Anyhow, here she is feasting on a caterpillar she just happened upon. Looks like she is only eating the guts: P1090241
