I sent in a loon story but Ii have one other story that was a big surprise to my mom and my uncle who wittnesed this bird with me. While we had our cabin at Falcon Lake, I was privileged to see a pileated woodpecker! The first time I saw the bird I ran to get my mom and my uncle. They were amazed when, on walking down the road, we came across this stunning 16 inch tall woodpecker pounding on a dead stump looking for food. On another occasion I discovered the nest located in a dead tree on our neighbour's property. It was an experience I will never forget, especially all those times they would wake me up pounding on the top of the phone pole at the end of our driveway!
