Though we were just in Santa Rosa for a few days, long enough to attend Leslie’s high school 50th reunion, I wanted to walk around Lake Ralphine and Spring Lake at least once. Unfortunately, much of the park was closed when we got there. They were obviously cutting down several of the larger trees.
I immediately wondered if this would affect my bird in the park. If anything the Acorn Woodpeckers were busier than usual packing their larder for winter.
I’m always amazed at the number of acorns these birds manage to wedge into the bark of trees.
On this trip they were so busy collecting acorns that they were completely indifferent to me and my camera, and seemed more than willing to pose.
