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 

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.
