So today my blog is going to highlight one species! The Pileated Woodpecker. It is the largest woodpecker species in North America it is the size of an average crow. It is loud and raucous when it flies over and it sounds like a Jungle Bird straight out of an old Tarzan TV show!
This particular day I was birding my hotspot, Goodale Lake, and this bird was very close to the path,,,and when he saw me he froze...normally they don't pay me much mind, but this one decided to not move so as to be stealthy...But the blinking of the eye he couldn't stop..
When they are drumming on a tree it echoes and reverberates all over the forest...and can be heard for quite a distance.
