Today, a report on Riverside Red. Tomorrow the discussion about Pale Male & Lola's nest begins

This morning I couldn't find the red-headed woodpecker who's been wintering [and now springing] in Riverside Park, directly across the street from my apartment house. Lori McFadden, a regular website reader, just wrote in to say she saw the bird around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24. She sent in the picture above.

Tomorrow: the discussion begins: What went wrong again for Pale Male and Lola? [Two possibilities] What is being done to answer that question? [Something!] Can we do anything to prevent failure in the future. [Maybe.] I'll publish a prescription for action from John Blakeman and some letters from readers.
