A really, really Good Friday

The redbelly woodpecker is working on a nest hole in an impossibly lit location. I first spotted it when sawdust landed on my head. Hopefully this will be a successful nest, not a starling-stole-the-house predicament.

But the big news is that the warblers are coming. Yesterday there was a cluster of pine warblers along the south side of Turtle Pond. Lots of activity. Also phoebes and kinglets in this space by the pond. One yellow rump, (which I could not get a successful picture of), and the shy hermit thrush. All flitting around, hard to shoot. Very exciting. This is just the beginning.

The hermit thrush.
