Here is the beloved Pileated Woodpecker. He was busy the whole time I was at the cemetery in Grafton. His mate could be heard throughout the wetlands and I was able to catch a glimpse of her before she flew off across the street.
I also met two birders while I was there which was very cool! I really need to get out there and meet some local birders as I am still really new at this. Perfect example was a bird flying up in the sky. I thought it was a Bluejay, but they knew straight off it was a hawk of sorts. We tried to get an identity, but it flew off too quickly. I would have still thought it was a Bluejay with my inexperienced eyes and ears. I think more experienced birders would teach me a lot this summer so need to break out of my comfort zone of birding alone and mingle a little. ;o)
