  1. I am not sure but I don’t think you have shared a write-up on the Lewis Woodpecker. We are totally blessed with having them frequent our offerings, One in particular makes countless trips to subsequently store his “larder” in every crack and opening of even power poles. If you have covered it, please do it again or send such to me.
    Really appreciate your efforts. Thanks and Happy New Year!

      You’re absolutely right–we haven’t done Lewis’s. That’s a great suggestion! Do you see them in the winter? I’ve only seen them during breeding season, down by the railroad tracks along the river and CR 45 nesting in the cottonwoods there. Since I can direct folks to a public spot where they’re likely to see them (and can’t really cause them much harm), I’d likely put them on the “menu” for this April or May. But if you’re seeing them year-round in the area, that’d be quite noteworthy and we might consider bumping them up in the rotation. (I know one or two are occasionally reported in Cañon, but it’s such a different–and warmer–ecosystem there in the winter.)

      The “white swans of winter” are on the docket for February. A Trumpeter was spotted at Sands Lake early this month, so we’ll give folks a head’s up to keep an eye out for these beauties in the next month or two.

      Thanks for the request. It’s great to hear from readers!
