  From Larry Nichols:

9-10am I heard a chattering call that sounded kind of like an oversized wren. It turned out to be a juvenile RED-HEADED WOODPECKER. I saw it where you walk up the main trail and veer right at the old barn.There is a pile of woodchips on the right of the path from where I viewed the bird in the wooded area.It seemed to take an interest in a woodpecker hole at the top of a dead birch. It entered the hole twice when I was there. The only sound this bird made was chattering sounds. The barring on the lower back was  noticeable.

Windows 7: I wanted simpler, now it's simpler. I'm a rock star.
