I took a quick bike ride to GGP today and was happy to see the eclipse male NORTHERN PINTAIL (first spotted by Dominik on 7/23) placidly swimming among a noisy whirlwind of young Pied-Billed Grebes.
In the woods by the Paddock, I saw 3 male HAIRY WOODPECKERS. A family? Two were interacting for 15+ minutes, posing, spreading tail feathers, and making little chirps. These two both had very dingy outer tail feathers--more yellowish-tan than white.
Everything else expected, including one NUTTALL's WOODPECKER and one DOWNY. Young Red-tailed Hawks swooped over the paddock, diving into the group of 50+ young House Finches.
