Shirley reports that she just saw a RED-HEADED WOODPECKER being chased thru
our side yard by a Pileated WP. She knows the difference between
Red-headed and Red-bellied WPs and clearly saw the all-red head and
all-black back, plus the bold white areas in flight. This is the first
Red-headed WP seen in our yard in the 18 years we have been here.
Different subject: Hummers. After seeing a female a few weeks ago there was
nothing until two days ago. We have seen both a female and a male at
different times in the past two days. Smiling.
Snake day yesterday. We were working outside yesterday and saw two,
possibly three milk snakes (plus a shed skin), a garter snake, and a black
snake reported by our daughter. All this was after a Spring with only one
garter snake sighting. We are wondering about the experience of others.
Pls reply to us directly to keep this space for bird comments.
