Our Feathered Friends - November 23, 2011

This past spring on a birding trip to The Cedars of Lebanon State Park with Ray, I was able to check off a new bird on my list. It was a woodpecker I had always wanted to see, but had never seen in the wild. Ray had his bird call CDs with him and he played the call of the Red-headed woodpecker. I did not want to get my hopes up, and Ray had warned me he hadnt seen one in the park in a while. But we were patient and waited, and our patience paid off. Im sure Ray will never forget the smile on my face when we spied a Red-headed woodpecker making his way towards us to determine who had invaded his area. He was more beautiful than I had ever anticipated!

, a reader of the column, emailed me and said he has a Wood Duck nesting box he wants to give to someone who lives near a lake and can use it. If you are interested in the nesting box or just want to send a message, contact me at I can pass your information onto Kenneth. Thanks to those who have sent me emails of reassurance! Ray, we miss you and look forward to your return!
