On the 5th of May 14 of us explored Lower Greenwoods in Barkhamsted. The property is owned by MDC and our birding was done by walking down the dirt road. We were rewarded with great views of 51 species. We had the pleasure of watching several Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers and Baltimore Orioles flying and landing in the trees together. We also observed a sapsucker excavating a hole in the front and back of a tree. It will be an interesting tree to check on and figure out if they use either hole as a nest site. As always a great morning spent with friends.

Respectfully submitted,
Mickey Nordell
