JOE OVERSTREET LANDING, KENANSVILLE, FL
February 9, 2019
We were literally up before the birds in order to be in place roadside at Three Lakes WMA Campground to observe Red-cockaded Woodpeckers leave their roosting tree. Those participants who arrived early saw two of the rare birds leave the roost for the day; nearly everyone in the group got at least brief views of one bird that returned to the area to forage. An additional treat was listening to the “squeaky toy” calls of several Brown-headed Nuthatches in the same habitat.
