On my walks in the park today, it seemed that both the birds and the plants have woken up to welcome spring. I particularly like the woodpeckers. They work hard and sing loud when they work. In the afternoon I saw a pileated woodpecker pounding on a dead tree near the entrance. To my surprise the bird did not mind me closing in to take pictures and videotape.
I am a frequent visitor of Brightwood Park and enjoy sharing my discoveries.
Brightwood Park is on the North end of Prospect Street. Go past Franklin School and look for the entrance on the left.
