Last weekend, Dee and I went back to Bear Creek Park to see if we could spot the Greater Pewee. We weren't lucky but we did see quite a few other birds. One was my first-of-season Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
Pine Warblers were everywhere. This young bird seemed to be totally unaware of my presence just a few feet away.
A female House Finch was standing in a puddle, looking as she couldn't decide whether or not to bathe.
Eastern Bluebirds were constantly shuttling between branches and the ground.
Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers stayed well out of camera range. However, a juvenile Red-headed Woodpecker let me approach a little closer.
It shouldn't be too long before this young bird's head grows the red feathers that give the species its name.
Although I once more dipped on the Greater Pewee, I wasn't too disappointed. The bird shows no sign of moving on and so I'll try again next weekend, hopefully with more luck then!
