      Now, where are those wrens and hummers?

        A highlight of today's birding was close and lingering views of three adult Lewis's Woodpeckers at Council Grove. On June 26 in the same location we had an adult Lewis's that flew into its cavity nest area with a small snake and proceeded to bash the snake about, much like a Kingfisher prepares a fish, and then made several moves into the nest hole as though it was feeding a youngster. I had never before witnessed this sort of behavior in any Woodpecker species.
