October 29,2012 Black-backed Woodpecker, #174 yard list

This morning while working in my office with the window open I heard and than saw a Black-backed Woodpecker. The bird flew into the yard and landed on a dead elm. It stayed for a few seconds and flew into the ravine. Also had a small flock of Evening Grosbeaks feeding on Manitoba Maple keys and 2 White-winged Crossbills flew over calling. Not bad from the office window!
Good birding, Bruce

Very useful having those dead elms to hand. Great yard bird! Hope this front coming through brings you #175 (and that the elm stays standing).
