    How wonderful to have time with a friend, and family too. Such a bold and pretty bird.

    it’s been so long since I went to Connecticut … I can well-imagine how different everything must be these days …

    there’s something about large birds like your pileated woodpecker (blue herons, pelicans, cranes, and roadrunners) that is so compelling … I would have stopped for a picture, too!

    Wonders indeed! I hope you’ll share photos of the poppies when they bloom. Isn’t it thrilling to see a pileated woodpecker? We have them quite near in the forest surrounding our home (in Northern California). We hear them more than see them; it never fails to excite.

      I will share – we have a few blooms now, expecting more. We have the woodpeckers at home in Maine but like you, hear them more than see them.

    I’m reminded of Jude’s phrase from her father, “there is no there, there.” It seems it’s often the case when we go back to places from our past. The pileated woodpecker! We have had them in our woods in So. IL for several years. Before that I only had about 5 sightings in my entire life. It’s still quite a thrill to see them and I hear them much more often. I think they have been able to adapt to smaller sections of hardwood forest. But outside a strip mall!

      I am always thrilled to see them. I didn’t think I’d see one on a median strip in Darien, CT!
