A Black-backed Woodpecker is being reported in a nearby town . . . a bird that lives in the Northern Maine and Canadian Boreal forests. I’ve only seen once back in 2015. At lunch I drove over to look for him.
Saw lots of Woodpeckers (including a rare for Maine Red-bellied) but no luck on the Black-bellied.
The highlight of the outing was a large juvenile Bald Eagle sitting on a house.
