My favorite is the warbling vireo's song: "I'll please you and I'll
squeeze you and I'll squeeze you 'til you squirt", compliments of
Gordon Schulze of NJAS Lorrimer Sanctuary in Franklin Lakes, New
His other expert advice, in determining a downy from a hairy
woodpecker: imagine you are holding one of them in your hand. If
you hammer his beak into his head and it comes out the back, you've
got a hairy. Otherwise a downy. !!!!
Happy spring. My bees were buzzing outside their hive today!
