Breakfast Landing

A female Gila woodpecker prepares to land on the saguaro where her nest is located, she's holding red material (fruit?) in her bill for her hungry babies to eat

Early on a spring morning, a Gila woodpecker brings food to her hungry babies waiting inside the saguaro. I’m not sure what she’s holding in her bill, my first thought was fruit but I couldn’t tell for sure (the saguaro’s aren’t fruiting yet). What a jewel she is!
