As I got out of the car in the East parking lot, I was greeted by a 
singing Indigo Bunting.  He kept singing in the same spot for about 5 
minutes, then he left.   Then on the Lake trail, I got my first very 
close look at two Pileated Woodpeckers.  They were pecking just 10 feet 
from me very close to ground.  When I walked up to the dam, there was 
another Indigo Bunting singing at the top of a tree.  What a beautiful 

I was thinking, Isn't it late in the season to have indigo buntings 
around here?  Are these two birds just hanging around longer, or is it 
normal for them?
