But waking through the nearby oak woodlands the first thing I saw was a woodpecker.
Later I found a flicker on this dead branch.
Then I found my hawk. This isn't the same one I had seen before though it might be a Swainson, I'm not that good a birder. He seems to think he might have spotted lunch.
A lot of hawks winter in our area. I am starting to see them on fence posts and power poles. Soon kites and harriers will be a regular sight in the open areas and the sharp shinned hawk will be checking out the birds at my feeder.
