White-headed Woodpecker at nest

Today, on the way back from Central Oregon, I stopped in the Ponderosa Pine belt along the eastern slope of the Cascades. Hearing the voices of hungry young woodpeckers in this cavity, I decided to wait and find out who might show up with their lunch. I turned out to be a female White-headed Woodpecker delivering what appeared to be a fat white larval form of some kind of beetle or moth.

This also must be prime time for butterflies, and this Painted Lady stopped to feed on Day Lilies in Bend.
