Gin & I got to see the RH Woodpecker at Palmer Woods around noon today, courtesy of Wes Blauvelt who kindly showed us where he had just seen it . We had been walking in the woods looking in all the wrong places around the top of the rise, but enjoying the balmy weather anyway when Wes came along and helped us out.
It was where it has been reported all along, on the large oak close to the Red marked trail, ~300 yds southwards from the head of the trail at Triphammer Rd. just opposite Iroquois Rd. Our only earlier sighting in Ithaca had been on Coddington Road ages ago. Hope everyone gets to go see this friendly Ithaca rarity. Nari & Gin Mistry -- _______________________ *Nari B.
