Oh wait, you’re not here for football commentary? Some of you (you know who you are) don’t even consider the game we play in the United States real football at all? Fine, let’s get down to business… my best bird of the weekend was a hulk of a Hairy Woodpecker, the kind that could never be mistaken for a Downy.  Corey was thrilled to find his first-ever-in-Queens Snow Bunting at Jamaica Bay.
