been a good spring for new birds this year. The only problem is that
we see them and identify them, but they only stay for a couple of
days. We’ve had Eurasian collared doves, a sharp-shinned hawk, a
roadrunner, and even heard some calls of different birds that we
haven’t been able to see. They’re way up in our Chinese elm trees.
The latest was a pair of ladderback woodpeckers, but so far we only
saw them for two days in a row and haven’t seen them since then.
I found this photo on another website. They got it from the Stokes Field Guide.
