On Sunday morning at around 10:40, I saw the continuing adult RED-HEADED
WOODPECKER in Cornell’s Palmer Woods. It was in the same location as often
reported since mid-November, in the woods along the red-blazed trail that
extends west from the large grassy clearing at the top of the slope
(approximately 42.4617N, 76.4812W). But it wasn’t as easy to find as on my
past visits, as it mostly stayed still.
I got a nice bonus sighting as I was waiting out the woodpecker – a
PEREGRINE FALCON flying eastbound overhead, low enough that I could see its
facial pattern as well as its distinctive shape.
Also, the EASTERN SCREECH-OWL along Siena Drive has continued to appear
every day in the ~90 minutes before sunset every day I’ve looked since
early November, including today.
