Ann and I took a brief visit to Middle Concho Park a couple of days ago. Birds from the migration are starting to return. Eastern Bluebirds, American Coots, grebes, etc. Also I got this image of a Red-shafted Northern Flicker (Colapts auratus). It was the first flicker that I had seen this season.
Further along we spotted this female Golden-fronted Woodpecker looking for bugs on a tree branch.
