It seems like no one has seen two Acorn Woodpeckers this year at Pueblo Mountain Park in Beulah, in Pueblo County. The first sighting this year was back on Jan 2nd, during the Lake Isabel Christmas Bird Count, by Van Truan. When I was there on March 17th, I saw the one Acorn Woodpecker chasing away an European Starling from its favorite tree. There had been a pair here for a few years, I wonder if something happened to the female or the pair, as I think the bird that has been around, is the male.
