I just returned from a long morning’s walk in the McIlroy Preserve, Summerhill NY. By far the greatest highlight was a WINTER WREN singing lustily from along side the yellow trail (keep right on the way in). It came to within 20 feet of me in response to playback and went on to sing continuously for at least five minutes.
The other highlight was a Red-bellied Woodpecker calling and drumming in the marshy area at the SW corner of the preserve. It eventually disappeared from view and then emerged (head only) from a cavity, continuing to call.
