Pileated Woodpecker Sighting!
I just saw a Pileated woodpecker about 30 minutes ago!!! I thought I saw one a couple of years ago but decided I had just conviced myself and that it was a red headed woodpecker instead. Well I got a clear view of this big guy as he flew across the road in front of me and landed on a big tree trunk. I was so excited that I called Gail right away even though I had just left her at work. I didn't know who else would fully appreciate what I had seen.
I'm going to have to report the sighting to the Audobon Society and the local wildlife group. I'm not sure if they're protected around here or not but sure don't want to take any chances by not notifying them.
