Wonder why they have not made another visit or have they and I was not aware - wonder.
Maybe that first time visit was to welcome me....
She was talking to her daughter who now lives in Florida. Usually looking out the window as she talks and watching her bird feeders and wondering if anything new will come out of the woods.
"Ohhhhhh - I can't believe it - I knew you were out there." "Mama what is going on?" my daughter asked.
She went on to share that a Pileated Woodpecker was on the old tree not far from her kitchen window. They had been spotted in the woods, but not seen close to her woods home.
Her daughter tells her to hang up the phone and reach for her camera. Shared it was there and then it was gone. She smiles because it will visit again.
This is a picture from a National Geographic site.
Some facts: Pileated Woodpecker - usually 16 to 19 inches long and weigh 8 to 12 lbs.
