Saturday Birding and Friday Woodpeckers

Yes, it would have been difficult sitting on the Lost Lake bench this morning.  At least the trail was dry enough to walk up to the lake.  

There were a number of birds at Snug Harbor and the Lost Lake Trail, none out of the ordinary (although eBird tagged 3 Black-throated Green Warblers as unusually high).  Others included a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk and my nemesis vireo in the Hemlocks, singing slower than most Red-eyed's but never showing itself to be Blue-headed!  A beautiful morning nonetheless.

Friday morning an old friend and I met at McGraft Park for a Covid picnic-table breakfast.  During our meal, Red-headed Woodpeckers flew and called all around us!
