Re: Lewis Woodpecker, San Marcos Preserve

I happened by around lunch time today (12/5) and noted the same activity. The Lewis' seems to "own" the three trees at the bend in the trail and sits proudly at the top of the dead snag giving nice views. Also noticed it running "sorties" flycatcher-style from it's perch, into the east wind and back over my head.

Lewis Woodpecker still present this afternoon at San Marcos Preserve before the oncoming rain storm. I noticed a couple times that an Acorn Woodpecker would chase it then here a loud altercation within the dense oak canopy whereupon the Acorn Woodpecker would beat a hasty retreat flying rapidly away while the Lewis then unhurriedly flew to a nearby perch.
