2014-05-23 Thread Brad Walker
Hi all, There was a lot of quiet activity on the Wilson Trail North this morning. The highlights were a calling (but unseen) YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER, giving its pewee-like chu-wee calls near the feeders/blind along the pond shore, and a male MOURNING WARBLER foraging along the trail behind the

Just a heads-up: My co-worker, Fred Channell, came in this morning and clearly described an adult RED-HEADED WOODPECKER, which he observed flying across the road in front of him around 8:45am. The bird was flying from right to left across Route 13 North-bound, just after but very near the

For an incredible third consecutive year I've stumbled across a pileated nesthole at the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve. The bird alerted me with its squawking as I jogged past, looked at me nervously for a long moment before popping into the hole. I did not hear baby noises, so I assume it is

For those of you who have asked: I haven’t seen the RH woodpecker in the last several hours. I’ll post again if it reappears; my hunch is that it moved through rather quickly. There is no question of the ID: we have all the resident woodpeckers in our woods; this was clearly a

A male pileated woodpecker of unusual color (partly leucistic?) has been coming occasionally to our suet feeder. He has brownish primaries, terminating in yellowish-brown tips, and a mostly brown rump which is visible mainly when he flies. After missing his visits for several weeks, I was
