Thursday May 24th I wanted To have a second look at Garfield Creek road. Last time I never got beyond the sign and this time I didn't make it much farther when I heard so much bird song I pulled over and parked.
Immediately 2 Lewis Woodpeckers flew off a tree made a circle and landed back on the same tree...one posed nice for me.
I was so happy since last year my sighting was so poor of one that swooped over the path of my car and I got no good look, so this makes up for that.
This pair was very co-operative and they hung out in that same tree for the duration of my stay...I saw a perfect sized hole in that tree so figured they may have a nest in it...so I left them to it. And I was hearing lots of singing so I ventured to the next little opening in the trees.
And House wrens were very noisy and threatening me....
A Western Wood Pewee made his Hawk like whistle...
I drew the attention of an entire flock of Black Capped Chickadees, and this one had a brood patch and a little more black streaks on her breast than I'm used to seeing.
the ever busy little Yellow Warbler took a minute to give me a good look over.
Deeper back a lovely Lazuli Bunting sang and posed for me...
As I said I'm a short timer here...one thing is constant in life and that is change!
