More Lewis’s Woodpeckers

I observed six Lewis’s Woodpeckers while hiking along S-7 on Palomar Mountain yesterday (11/3).  All six birds were fly-catching from a large, dead-looking tree in Dyche Valley.  The birds were not close to the road and, unfortunately, there arefew places to pull a car over along this stretch of road.  Some other birds I noted in the valley included a single Mountain Bluebird, Pine Siskins, and a White-tailed Kite.  The kite is not common at this elevation (4500+ feet).Ken WeaverFallbrookgnatcatcher@…
