Sightings for Monday September 24th

Montreal, Ste-Anne-De-Bellevue: Hi everyone, a Red-headed Woodpecker flew in front of us as we hawk watched along Chemin Ste. Marie at the old Spar parking lot. It landed in a tree alongside the road before heading toward the large evergreens opposite the Ecomuseum. A young bird flew the same way last year on 16th October. What are the odds and where are these birds coming from? Many years ago a young Red-headed spent the fall and part of the winter near the entrance to the Arboretum.

Cheers, Bob.
