Red-headed woodpeckers!

Another quick check of Bell's Lane late on this gorgeous afternoon yielded more pleasant surprises: At least one adult Red-headed woodpecker and at least one juvenile Red-headed woodpecker were chattering and flying about the tops of some big oak trees. I saw several of those woodpeckers in South Dakota in July (), but they are relatively rare in Virginia. This family was no doubt migrating southward. Today's list:

  • Red-headed woodpeckers (A, J)
  • Wilson's warbler (close!)
  • Magnolia warbler (very close!)
  • Red-bellied woodpecker
  • Brown thrasher
  • Catbirds, Chickadees, Titmice, Mockingbirds

Oddly, there was much less bird activity overall than there was yesterday at the same time.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


Explanation

The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
