Today was cloudy but warm, and we headed out to see what was going on in the park. At the pond, no wood ducks, some courting behavior on the part of some mallards, but the females seemed generally uninterested.
We did see the red headed woodpecker briefly, but lost him pretty quickly. Still no red on the head that I could see. I was hoping to get good pictures from both sides and see if I could find any red, but, that will have to wait for another day. :-)
At the oven, we ran into a birder who gave us a very interesting tidbit - she had heard a rumor about where some long eared owls were! Well, that made our decision easy - we would go on an owl quest! She came with us, because she hadn't been able to find them earlier, but maybe with three of us we would have better luck. Off we went, and when we found the area we split up and looked and looked.
