Another Lewis’s Woodpecker

Another Lewis’s Woodpecker

By – 6:47 pm
After reading eBird Alerts by Sue Pease and Ellen Feeney reporting a Lewis’s Woodpecker at Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve–east, I visited the location described this afternoon and found the woodpecker. Link to my checklist:https://ebird.org/checklist/S97991286For those of you who may not be familiar with this part of Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve (I wasn’t), I entered the preserve from the Canyonside Community Park at Black Mountain Road and Canyon Park Driveway and drove west to the Los Penasquitos Ranch House. There’s a rectangular field bordered by trails immediately west of the house. The large sycamore with my best views is along the west side.  There’s parking at the Ranch House but it has a gate that opens at 9:30 according to the sign so you may need to park by the baseball fields.Jan NordenbergSan Diego
