Palos Woodpecker Workshop

Sean had unwavering confidence (arrogance?) about his birdability today. And I have to say it was justified. Took me to where he knew there were Red-headed Woodpeckers nesting...
He spotted Sandhill cranes whilst there.
Then he asked if I'd like him to show me a Pileated Woodpecker. First time ever - watched a nesting pair for a good half hour. Saw them drumming, MATING, nest excavating, eating, and flying from tree to tree.
