Can anyone confirm the id on this bird? It is not usual in our location. When I checked the internet, this was the closest bird that I could find — Gila Woodpecker.
I have just returned from a one week trip to my daughter’s house. I was able to bring the computer with me, and therefore, I could more or less keep up with all the posts and responses. However, upon my return, I found out that I will be going out of town with one of my other daughters until October 3. I have prescheduled the posts for the Water Water Everywhere Challenge and also for the Bird of the Day Challenge until I return. On this trip, I can’t take my computer. Therefore, I will only be able to respond on my phone. The problem is that I have problems reading the small screen, so I am not sure that I will be able to keep up.
On my return, I will get caught up as fast as I can. Hopefully, I will have enough time to join in on some of the other challenges before I leave again in mid October.
Have a wonderful couple of weeks!
