Meeting on Deer Is Tonight!
Thursday's Deer Management Meeting

Rob Fanning CF Report: Pileated

Rob reports:

A quick lunchtime stop at CF produced a constantly singing (but not seen) YELLOW-THROATED VIREO near the Scout Platform, and a constantly calling and seen PILEATED WOODPECKER working the low trunks in the nearby wooded section toward Brotherton's Bridge.
The Vireo was first detected by John Workman several days ago--so it may be hanging around. Both are very scarce to rare at the CF--but Pileated sightings have been on the increase the last several years.
Full e-bird list below. (Thanks, Rob!)
