A Visit to Genesee Mountain Park

July 11, 2011

Richard Stevens:

Three of us went back to Genesee Mountain Park (Jefferson County) to check on the two Williamson's Sapsucker nests discovered a few weeks ago. One of the nests still had the male and female birds feeding at least two young. There was no activity at the other nest.

The first pair of Williamson's Sapsuckers did wander around the flagpole at the top of the park. The second or possibly a third male Williamson's Sapsucker was seen around the group picnic area.

Other birds encountered included: 1 Clark's Nutcracker, 4 Red Crossbills, three species of Nuthatches, Mountain Chickadees and several flocks of Pine Siskins.
