American Three-toed Woodpecker

A Rare Woodpecker

Viewed 18 Times

The looks we got of this American Three-toed Woodpecker was way beyond anything I was expecting. Completely made up for the fact that we had to stand on the side of a random county road for 2 hours in -20 degree weather waiting for him to make an appearance.
We first heard him peeling bark, but deep in a spruce thicket on private property. After I while I spotted him flying across the road, and the long wait was rewarded with looks of him foraging at eye level!

A great Bird Tale! But hearing about you standing out in temps like that make me shiver while sitting at my desk. Congrats on a rare bird!
