Good morning, birders!
This morning (about 9:15), just north of the intersection of Belleview and Havana, in the “wetlandsy-creekbed” I found a lovely Red-headed woodpecker! Very conveniently clinging to a snag on the top of a dead tree. I was able to get very good looks at it (I don’t carry a camera).
Nice to get an unexpected State/County bird!
Earlier, down near the Cottonwood Creek pond (the one near the wild-life overlook), but downstream from the pond, I had a very striking Eastern Kingbird working the liminal zone between some willows and the meadows.
