Birds at Highbanks

April 13th trip to Highbanks Metro Park. We were going to join the Columbus Audubon outing that afternoon in the rain. We thought there would only be a couple of people there, but we were wrong -- a couple of dozen showed up. We didn't stick around for most of the walk since I was still pretty tired from the 2 am arrival time that morning. I did take some photos from the feeder area.

There were a lot of different woodpeckers around the feeders, including this cute Downy.

Pete, I agree with you! I saw a lot of great looking birds this past weekend, too.
