Re: Ivory-Billed Woodpecker Found!

When I lived in Maryland there were several pair of Pileated Woodpeckers 
that lived in the woods near a house I rented for a while.  I love 
watching them.  Amazing birds and the about of tree back and wood they 
could removed while pecking, resulted in a small pile of sawdust beneath!
