Christmas Eve this year fell on a Sunday and my usual afternoon to volunteer at Reifel. There was not much of a crowd and it was fairly quiet on the birding front as well. Fortunately some of the regulars were cooperating.
Such as this House Finch,
… and Purple Finch. Later in the day while trying to track down a woodpecker I could hear drumming on a tree,
… this Brown Creeper made a brief appearance next to me. And to finish the day of was the source of the drumming,
… a Downy Woodpecker.
