Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of March 2012)
Change is in the air, isn’t it? All around the world, satisfaction subsides as an inevitable restlessness sets in on a cellular level. If you’re able to resist the lure of migration, you can at least pull up a seat and watch the endless waves pursue their predestined bliss. Or join in…
Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was, what else, his first Red-headed Woodpecker in Queens! I had my share of best birds while visiting Wild Wings at Mendon Ponds Park. Choosing among the hawks, eagles, and owls at the raptor residence (alas no rehab for these irreparably injured birds of prey) and the active late winter species in the park seemed impossible, until an impressive Pileated Woodpecker put on a powerful display of excavatory activity. Woodpeckers FTW!
