I finally got photos of juvenile(s), and verified 2 adults and 2 juvenile RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS; generally mid-morning this family tends to move from trees and suet feeders at 35 Bradley (Trumansburg) over to my yard, favoring 3 old sugar maples, two that border Bradley and one just east of Bradley on Strowbridge. Clearly saw the 4 birds in flight and on perches. It’s a little tricky with the juvenile photos, but it looks to me like one is lighter in plumage than the one shown on the suet feeder. Not as much vocalization as previously heard, some short calls and rattles. Next challenge is to get some good vocalizations recorded. One of the juveniles was zig-zagging from tree to tree, apparently hawking insects, which I have not seen the adults doing.
