Hi Tweets

At 1:40 today (Oct 1) the Acorn Woodpecker was foraging and working on an acorn in one of the Red Oak trees lining the NE 65th St. edge of the carpool lot at Magnuson Park (NE 65th St entrance). It finally managed to pull the acorn off the tree and immediately flew across the road to a snag with lots of bark that looked like it was peeling back. It appeared to be trying to stash the acorn there.

This is a great looking bird with really fresh appearing plumage and nicely contrasting features.

Good birding.
