Re: Ivory-Billed Woodpecker Found!


I don't get any 'fancy' birds at my house, and because of the abundance of cats I really don't encourage them. I mostly get wood peckers, blue jays, mocking birds, robins, cardinals and crows. My friends here do, however, put food out and get lots of them. We were commenting just the other day about the number of buntings here this year. It's really astounding.

Zem, did you notice an abundance of buntings? We've had more at our
feeders than ever before. We've counted at least 8 pair this year. Now
we're anxiously awaiting the appearance of the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks
that show up each year for a couple of weeks. Ahh, spring!

I agree with you, Daryl, that Pileated Woodpeckers are cool beyond cool.

Have you all had a lot of woodpeckers of all sorts this year? We have
more
than I've ever before seen. In fact this year we seem to have more of
every
sort of birds this year. Today I took a ride through the Wolf River
Nature
Conversancy that abuts my small town. There beside the soy bean fields
were
blue birds, indigo buntings, finches and cardinals. What a beautiful
(and
colorful) site they were.

I can't imagine what it's like to see one. Not only the shivers that go
down
my spine that such a rare bird, thought lost, is found, but also the
sheer
size of the thing. The locals call the Pileated Woodpecker the "Lord
God
Bird"  (as in "Lord God, What's that?") but the Ivory-Billed is even
bigger.

We occasionally have a Pileated here. They're enormous, and pull
chunks of bark off of dead pines that can knock you out.  Awesome
indeed!
