Downy Woodpecker feeding nestlings

I found this female Downy Woodpecker on the Canon City Riverwalk feeding her nestlings in this nesthole. I could often hear the nestlings calling out to be fed.

While I watched both the male and the female Downy Woodpeckers came in to feed their nestlings. The top pic shows the female with her head in the tree hole as she feeds her nestlings. The bottom pic is a view of that female from the side showing her face fairly well. Note the distinctive white nasal bristles.
