On 24 June an alternate plumaged Black Tern was at Tinemaha Reservoir which is FOF for us. Along the west shoreline about 50 yards south of the in flow from Tinemaha Creek was a Ladder-backed Woodpecker. It was an adult male that had all seven characteristics (including call) that indicated that it was not a hybrid with Nuttall's.
