This little male downy woodpecker was tap-tapping “surprisingly close to ground level” when Mike Roche found him at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct 17, on a Central Park Avenue tree. Roche wrote the RoundTable: “They are normally very shy and skittish and tough to photograph, but this guy was captured by an iPhone 11 from about 12 feet!”

The RoundTable’s Evan Girard is always doing 50 things at once, and yet she will always have time to stop and notice beautiful things in Evanston. These two perfectly colored fall trees were found in her neighborhood. The first is at Hinman Avenue and Lake Street; the second at Elmwood Avenue and Greenwood Street.

Mary Ransford caught this beautiful, colorful moment at twilight at Ridge Avenue just north of Emerson Street.

Bee Cox took this photograph of the arch at Lake Street Church of Evanston, 607 Lake Street. It’s so sharp that you feel you can walk down the hallway.

Jean Cunningham reminds us that fall along the lake is one more reason to live and walk in Evanston. She took this peak fall color pic at Dempster Street and the lakefront.

The mural at Park School, 828 Main Street, is a graphic reminder of the facility and the important children that get an education there. It’s one of the many pieces of public art in Evanston.

Despite the flag waving, the Evanston Township High School football team Friday night lost to Maine South High School, who clinched the Central Suburban League South division championship with a 28-7 victory at Lazier Field.

We salute you, sir!
