Some People Wait For The First Robin Sighting...

... I wait for these. =) Long before Robins return to my yard, I wait for the loud, crazy call of the Pileated Woodpecker. Although it's tough to tell from a photo, these guys are MASSIVE! They are nearly 20" long, with a wingspan of 26-30". They don't migrate, but they do hide out in the lower cedar swamps until spring. When I hear them in my yard, at the top of a high hill, I know that spring is soon to follow.

They are really shy and are usually only seen in quiet, wooded areas. If you think about a movie set in the jungle and the sound of birds in the background, that's what they sound like. Their massive size alone, makes them pretty unnerving the first time you see one.

I remember when we first built our home on a river in a woods, I looked out my kitchen window one morning to see one of these huge monsters on the side of a tree. My neighbor had been teasing me the morning before about setting up my bird feeders and houses. Having a crazy, prankster, woodworking neighbor, I thought that he had put a huge, wooden woodpecker on my tree as a joke... until it flew away! Although prehistoric-looking and downright homely, they sure are fun to watch.

Hi, all.

I posted this in the Expressions group earlier, but thought I would share it here also.

this is a photo of the migratory fowl, flying SOUTH over our home this am! there were wave after wave of huge flocks of birds....i think the unseasonably warm weather we had last week and the major snowstorm just to the north of us has them a bit confused this year. lol
