Red-headed Woodpeckers in Franklin Twp., Dec. 5, 2013

From Robert Skrabal:
I saw at least three immature Red-headed Woodpeckers today at Colonial Park, Franklin Township. There were also 2 No. Pintails and 7 Am. Wigeons there.

From Chris Williams at the same location:
Immature Red-headed Woodpecker at Eco Nature Trail in Colonial Park,
Franklin Twp. (Near area of last year’s bird) It was found on the left side of trail just before wooden boardwalk begins.

[Editor’s note: These RHWOs have probaly been at Colonial Park throughout the season. A juvenile was reported to eBird on Nov. 17, 2013. RHWOs were frequently reported from here in the winter of 2012.]

A late afternoon drive through a fogged-in Great Swamp NWR produced 1 Red-headed Woodpecker near the north gate of Pleasant Plains Rd. Winter Wrens continue to be noticeable with one at the north gate and three at the Wildlife Observation Center (Friends Blind area).
