[0:16] That is Pileated Woodpecker.
[0:26] I’m in my backyard. I’m actually on the back porch, which is a screened-in porch in my backyard.
I was driving home yesterday and these two woodpeckers, pileated woodpeckers, which are large birds, bigger than a crow.
Crows are pretty big, maybe about the size of a raven, and they’re just funny-looking because when you see them on the ground it looks really odd because they don’t walk, they hop.
I did not know this, because I never see them on the ground.
I always see them, either on a tree feeding, like on the trunk of a large tree, or I see them flying from tree to tree.
And what was weird about it yesterday was that they were, there were two of them, so I’m guessing it was a mating pair.
They were hopping around each other and paying no attention to me in the car, you know, 20 feet away.
Another car drove up five feet away and they just ignored it, which was just so weird.
They were so enraptured, I guess, with each other that
They didn’t do their normal fly away immediately thing.
[1:52] So I guess that’s kind like people when we get really focused on somebody we can’t see anything else but them.
You know pileated woodpeckers are not people but it just reminded me, I’ve been like that before.
You just can’t really see anything else except that person right in front of you that’s a good thing to be able to have that experience.
I hope that you have had that experience, And I hope these Pileated woodpeckers are able to Keep populating these woods.
[2:34] Because I sure love hearing that that laughing woodpecker sound,
