Williamson’s Sapsucker: Veterans Memorial Park, Sylmar, CA

Williamson’s Sapsucker
We like when there are clear directions to see a rare bird. We use BirdsEye on the iPad that collects information from ebird. When we were in LA, there was a report of a Williamson's Sapsucker, so with a bit of searching on the internet we found these directions:

The Williamson's Sapsucker was present late this afternoon at Veteran's Memorial Park in Sylmar. It spent a lot of time on the fourth pine tree south/east of lamppost #20.

Now, to be honest, we saw it on the first and fifth pine tree, but it was nice to have such clear directions. It was a really pretty bird to see and shows a bit more detail and color than our yellow-bellied sapsuckers.

Thank you both so much for this beautiful photo blog. I hope you do not mind if I add it as a link on my preschool classroom website.
The children can use it as an online identification tool as we begin our unit of study on winter birds in NJ.
