7/30 We decided to try canoeing at a new spot, Cole's Pond in Walden, and
were rewarded with a lifer - a MALE BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER. At the north
end of the pond, he was working the trees right in front of us for a good 15
Also of note were BROWN CREEPER and COMMON LOON, 2 adults and a chick. The
chick was swimming on his own with one attentive parent close by at all
times. At one point, both adults treated us to their haunting serenade.
