Pileated Woodpecker (Two Photographs)

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.

  2. Great captures, Victor. I’m surprised that they mulched the ash trees, I’d worry that the borers would survive, but perhaps not once the tree was pulverized.

    • While a monumental task taking all the fallen down wood away and burning it would have been best and benefitted everyone.
