Also don't forget to check Brighton SP for Black-backed WPs. If you take
the Red Pines trail (get there from the Pond trail) there are a number of
dead spruces to your right at the beginning, uphill section of the trail. I
had a female there in May 2009 and they tend to hang out where the dead
trees are - even in the dead of winter. I was besieged by mosquitoes that
day... but I managed to get a few pictures of her before all the blood was
drained from me.
