What made these holes? A woodpecker? They were on a dead tree in upstate PA.

The answer is either Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, suggested by Joanne Appert, or Eastern Red-headed Cribbager, suggested by Rob Harold.

You decide. (Thanks to all!)

Terrific Exhibit at the Blauvelt Art Museum

Osprey watercolor
Don't' miss  the nifty article in The Record about nature artist James Fiorentino, whose traveling watercolor exhibit highlighting New Jersey's endangered birds, frogs, turtles and more is at the Hiram Blauvelt Museum in Oradell now through the end of July.

My favorite painting of the 25 on display is a bird's-eye view 636306384957690399-peregrinegwbridgeof Peregrine Falcon patrolling the George Washington Bridge, but you should really see for yourself.

The free exhibit by this talented artist is sponsored by Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. The museum, on a hill overlooking on Kinderkamack Road, is excellent as well.

The Record article, by James O'Neill, is here.

The Blauvelt Museum is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. It's located at 705 Kinderkamack Road, Oradell.

A link to the museum's web page is here.
