(We know the answer if you don't.)
Field notes on Friday included a report of 11 wood ducklings seen near the Warden's Watch, so I looked closely at a group we saw at the boy scout platform. I think there's 14 or even 15.
How many do you see? (Thanks, Tom!)

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!)
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.
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.
