Green woodpecker chicks fledging

Mid June I spent 2 days hiding in front of a tree in which a Green woodpecker was nesting and was lucky enough to see all 5 chicks successfully fledge. It was funny to see how each one was taking quite some time to get enough courage to come out off their nest hole but as the parents eventually stopped feeding them the hunger seemed to get too much and they followed the calls of the parents and siblings.
