"This fellow" is a link to someone who must have been overdoing his celebrations:
The Merry Drinker.

With warm regards to all,

Three woodpeckers + and five waterfowl

Hello all,

On New Year's Day I saw my first mature Cooper Hawk, my first in a while, and I has another glimpse of that great horned owl.

On January 3rd, I saw five different waterfowl on the Reservoir: mallards, shovellers, ruddy ducks, a female hooded merganser and American coots.

Today, I saw three live woodpeckers, red bellied, downy and a northern flicker. Additionally, I saw an immature red-tailed hawk finishing off a breakfast of a hairy woodpecker. I also got a glimpse of a brown creeper.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Hi Arthur!

Sounds as though you've had a good beginning to your new year. When you said you saw "three live woodpeckers" I kind of raised my brows until I got to the part about the Hairy Woodpecker.
