To repay him for his great kindness, I mentioned the Acorn Woodpecker
entertaining birders at Magnuson. "I have to drive in that direction,"
Jeffrey said, thoughtfully, and with a soft sonic boom was gone. I

as we who are suffering one plumbing adventure after another at home
this week know so well, but surely the powers that be will see how
just it is to present that woodpecker to a kind-hearted guy, who gave
this Fill aficionado such a wonderful moment.

Also present at the Fill: a Red-breasted Nuthatch (rare for us), a
Western Meadowlark, Golden-crowned Kinglets, a Virginia Rail, and
hordes of Yellow-rumped Warblers too numerous to count. - Connie,
