Sun Lakes State Park
Sun Lakes State Park

We didn’t spend a lot of time at Sun Lakes State Park looking for wildlife. But there was a bird persistently chirping and hopping from branch to branch as we sat near a lake. As far as I can tell this is a woodpecker, probably a downy woodpecker, but I’m a rank amateur when it comes to birds.

I did readily identify other wildlife. Mosquitoes. Swarms of them, following us. They even came out of our trailer cabinet a day or two after we left Sun Lakes. It was like Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds” on a miniature level.

  1. That’s a cute little whatever…mosquitos? I hate those things. The worst I’ve seen was in Flamingo in the Everglades. Swarms of them covered us up as soon as we stepped out of the car. Minnesota has some too. Big ones! In fact, the mosquito is the Minnesota state bird!
