    Bird species:
    Top: Northern Flicker
    Middle: Starling
    Bottom: Northern Flicker

    The Flickers are likely a hybrid between Red-Shafted and Yellow-Shafted. But it’s hard to be sure.

    Looking forward to Tony’s comments on the hurricane. I just saw a graphic on TV that showed the hurricane on land with a number 4 on it, which means wind speeds of about 155. I checked the wind speed in 4 towns in that area, spanning about 50 miles and the highest wind speed I found was 24. I live in Minnesota and when we get snow it can vary in one storm from 4 to 12 inches, for example. The weather guy/gal would never say we got 12 inches of snow. They would say a thin band got 12 inches. Totally different way of reporting compared to the national news sites. The 155 mile an hour winds were obliviously in a tiny area, if they ever existed at all.
