Back to Lacy Park.: Baby Woodpeckers

Last week at Lacy Park, we saw a pair of nuttall's woodpeckers enter a hole in a tree carrying insects. We also heard baby woodpeckers calling but we never saw them. So, we came back this weekend in hopes that an additional week of growth would result in the babies sticking their heads out to be fed. We were right, and enjoyed the show.

The Western Tanagers spend only a short time in our yard during their migration, but we are always happy to see this colorful bird.

Cedar Waxwings, Robins and Pyracantha

The cedar waxwings and robins are a bit late this year. The Pyracantha berries are still around, so they are feasting.

Palm Springs

We are back in California, recovered from the monthlong trip to Australia and Fiji. We decided to skip the Super Bowl and go to Palm Desert. Here's a few birds we saw.
