Pileated Woodpecker 2/15/2014

Posted Sunday 16th February 2014 at 00:19 by LifeIsGood2
I am thrilled to have seen a pileated woodpecker today here in Missouri. I only briefly saw it in flight and described it to my husband. He said it was a wood hen. He is not into bird watching but has always heard it called a wood hen. I looked it up on the internet and learned that it is a pileated woodpecker. I am hoping to get a better look at it tomorrow, but I do not know if they nest and stay in a small area or if it roams a lot day to day. It would be fantastic if I can get a picture....

I was briefly in Aguiño in the morning. I saw a small group of bar-tailed godwits, egret, and cormorants. In the afternoon I take a quiet walk with the family by Cabio beach were I was looking shags.

During the last 15 months we have met and spent time with some very special people. People who have volunteered their time freely and opened their doors to help us in our bid to raise awareness and money as ambassadors for waders.

Here are the great birders and guides we met on our travels and some of the waders we saw with them:

No more bird feed

Just wondering what is common for investment into bird seed. I am new to bird watching, as I've mentioned, and it is winter in Missouri. So, I imagine myself walking through wooded areas spotting birds in the spring but for now used bird seed to bring them up close in the back yard. I saw Juncos, sparrows, tufted titmouse, lots of blue jays and cardinals, nuthatches and a big woodpecker - Red Breasted. I think a couple more species but they were not here often enough for me to identify. I think...

The past weekend wasn't as expected. For one of the days I wanted to do some work at home and for the other one I wanted to visit a site for a Rock Partridge and White-backed Woodpecker not far from my place. These are two species that a friend from the Netherlands wants to see and I wanted to make sure we increase our chances of seeing the birds. I did the whole preparation for the trip and then a colleague called with a rather tempting suggestion. Pelican photography! Huge temptation. I decided...
