An Acorn Woodpecker --see the stiff tail feathers common to all woodpeckers?
Sapsucker. The question of the day is which kind of Sapsucker is it? Yellow-bellied or Red-naped?
Northern Flicker. Red-shafted. Has red wing linings as well as a red under tail.
Nice grassy area.
Horehound makes good cough drops.
There was a big plant near the beginning of the walk. The horehound above is used in making cough drops and home remedies. I once misspelled it for a class. A rather embarrassing error. "Wrong kind of hore, Karen." Oops.
There are beautiful places to walk in Santiago Oaks Regional Park.
Nuttall's Woodpecker on a pine tree.
On the way back to the parking lot, we crossed another creek.
