Lineated Woodpecker

Not the steadiest hand, but check out how fast this Lineated Woodpecker I spotted in Costa Rica picks ants off the palm tree:


It’s that time of year again!


Fall Migration is starting to heat up here in South Florida. Birders are all excited about a Canada Warbler that has been spotted in both Evergreen Cemetery and Richardson Park, two birding hot spots. I wish I had the time this week to go chase this migratory bird, but alas, it may be one that I miss out on. I did manage to snag a sighting of a Worm-eating Warbler this past weekend at Tall Cypress Nature Reserve, a bird that had eluded me during Spring Migration. I also added both the Veery and the Scarlet Tanager to my Life List, which currently stands at 313. I also got my best image so far of a Eastern Wood-Pewee, which I saw for the first time last fall in Arkansas. What will the next birdy outing yield? Time to put on the bins and go find out!
