I was up at Montezuma NWR this morning, and after spending a fun hour or so 
photographing the Purple Martins I headed over to Mays Point to see if there 
were any Red-headed Woodpeckers. After hanging out near the flooded trees for 
half an hour,  I was about to leave when 1 Red-headed Woodpecker flew in and 
landed on a treetrunk. But it was immediately buzzed by another bird (possible 
Tree Swallow?) and flew off north toward the weir, where there was lots of 
noisy construction (human) going on. I waited around a while but it never 
reappeared, nor did I see any evidence they are nesting in that spot. Does 
anyone else have more positive news?
