To The Beat of the Downy Drummer


This woodpecker snippet appears “wobbly” I know. But I wanted to share with folks just how filled with bird chatter the mornings on Fishers Island can be!

Up east on the bike path I quickly hopped off to catch this Downy drumming fiercely. These birds audibly mark their nesting territory during breeding season.

On such a quiet Sunday morning I could hear its rival pecking away down the road within woods by Chocomount.
