Comments:
Walked into recently burned conifer forest (burned Aug 2017, according to park ranger I spoke with at Rim), having read an eBird report of Black-backed Woodpecker seen here within past few weeks. I walked 5 to 10 minutes west, slightly uphill, to where traffic noise diminished. Played pygmy-owl recording briefly, and had a quick response from woodpeckers and chickadees, etc. Studied woodpecker especially, then returned to road (mosquitoes bothersome). Hot, clear, calm weather.
Species
7 species (+2 other taxa) total
1

Had instant response from 2 woodpeckers, which flew around to a few trees, drumming and calling. Calls were of 3-toed Picoides type ... I only saw one bird at a time; the second was either behind a trunk or possible within a nest hole. The male I saw well (binocs from 30 feet or so) perched rather high (25 ft up) and gave me a side view for 10 minutes, occasionally moving around and making short flights, so that I saw the uncovered back a few times, confirming that it was evenly barred white and black, and therefore this species. Large yellow forecrown patch. White throat and supercilium, separated by black. Dense black barring on breast, side. Tail largely black. Gave loud drums (depending on tree, used 2 or 3), occasional calls.

woodpecker sp.

the unseen apparent partner of adult male American Three-toed that was seen well; in all likelihood, another of this species, either adult female or juvenile. Heard drumming and calling.

nuthatch sp.

with chickadees, other passerines; viewed from below, not studied carefully because of my interest in woodpecker. I thought they were Pygmy's but did not confirm.
