What's Out Saturday
A pair of Pileated Woodpeckers were intent on working on a cavity tree. One was increasing the size of the already existing hole and the other was standing off to the side and would occasionally fly in and look in the hole.They were so intent on their activity I was able to ease up very close to watch them.
One of my purposes at the location I went today was to see if the Redstarts had arrived. I finally spotted the female then the male. I stood for some time hoping for a chance to get a good shot however they were hunting deep within some brush and all the shots were very poor. The entire time I stood in that location, a Brown Thrasher serenaded me. They have a beautiful and varied medley.
I am looking forward to meeting my friend tomorrow for some eagle and osprey watching. Hope to have some good shots for tomorrow.
