Rob Schulman and I were standing six feet apart at Grenfell Park on Baker Creek Road this morning…we had heard a Pileated scream…Rob found him, and then he was joined by his mate…they were chiseling away at the base of a large dead tree trunk across the creek from us…through the branches and other interference my photos were pathetic, below are the least sorry of the bunch.

Still plenty  of Varied Thrush at Grenfell.  VG and Tree Swallow at pond on Pheasant Hill Road, also male Hooded Merganser in full regalia.


  1. My FAVORITE woodpecker. You lucky! I have seen two on the ground working a log in Yosemite, one on Mt. Tam and one off Tolman Creek Rd.
