June 30 - Sparta Mountain

This morning I tried to find Ruffed Grouse at one of the spots that is known to be good for this reclusive , and declining, bird but I was not successful. However there were still plenty of nice birds to be seen. Noteworthy today were an adult male Pileated Woodpecker with it's young, both male and female Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, a surprise in the American Woodcock, Hairy Woodpecker, Great-Crested Flycatcher, Eastern Phoebe and Eastern Wood-Pewee.
