We have had three tragic incidents at the nature reserve I frequent. One, a micro-burst that destroyed part of the reserve, flattened parts like a battlefield. The second, an ice storm that toppled huge trees. The third, man-made, was the clear-cutting of part of the park to get rid of the emerald ash borer. The clear-cut was overkill and the mulch they left behind not great for rejuvenation. Still this woodpecker found some solace in a destroyed tree.
