Lewis’s Woodpecker Irvine Lake

Liga Auzins

I observed a Lewis’s Woodpecker flying east to west high above the south end of Irvine Lake at 8:20 am. It landed in a dead tree atop the ridge line, several hundred meters from my location on the West Side Trail.
This is about a quarter mile or more from Santiago Cyn Rd where Tom Miko, yesterday, reported a dark woodpecker flying across the road.
