Hyland Park

Went running at Hyland Park today. The trails we ran on were pretty good. Ran with Marilyn & Gloria. Maynard was walking in the park.

Birds found: a pair of Mallards, 4 Canada Geese, a pair of Common Mergansers, at least 7 Hooded Mergansers on the water plus some Bluebirds, and a Pileated Woodpecker. The turkeys were displaying their big tails and fighting with each other. I watched four of them pair up to fight and the noise attracted two more males. There were only 3 females to fight over.

The video is a Red-bellied Woodpecker looking for breakfast.
