On Forest Edge

Apart from the intrigue of wading birds and raptors, next most interest to me is probably the woodpecker, in its varieties. I’ve gotten a little better look at the woodpecker, now in my second full year of surveilling wildlife. From the magnificent Redheaded Woodpecker and the thunderous Pileated. This year near the beginning of a clearing at Tourne Park in Boonton, I’ve been able to observe Hairy and Northern Flicker nest cavities in the spring to summer and enjoyed the action and noise from the young offspring. A pair of Pileated Woodpeckers capped off as good a season for woodpeckers as I’ve ever had. Thanks for viewing!
