Lewis's Woodpecker, Solvang, 2021-09-25

This afternoon I had a fly-over Lewis's Woodpecker as a new yard bird. 

Late September is a bit early for this species in Santa Ynez Valley and it reminded me of fall 2014 when we had a small wave of them moving through in the first week of October. So check out those flying crows you think you're seeing.
