Erika and I are just back from the Big Woods State Park. We saw at least 8
and possibly a dozen Red-headed Woodpeckers around the main parking lot and
across the county road by the headquarters. They were noisy.

On Saturday we saw a Greater Yellowlegs up to its belly feeding in a riffle
of the Cannon River in the Carleton College Arboretum. The bird was
actively fishing in the fashion of an egret, a behavior reported in the
literature, but which I have never seen. A photo is on my blog:
