I found a woodpecker this weekend! These live here year round. Their numbers are down some, but they survived whatever got the smaller birds. I am zeroing in on what I think got the little birds: a chemical cloud mixture with pesticides. (You will see below). Anyway, come on in and take a break. I have nice surprises for You!!

- Southern Pileated Woodpecker (D. p. pileatus) – the southeastern U.S., except Florida.
- Northern Pileated Woodpecker (D. p. abieticola) – Distributed from the Canadian Prairies provinces east through Eastern Canada and the northern United States.
- Florida Pileated Woodpecker (D. p. floridanus) –the Florida peninsula and Florida Keys.
- Western Pileated Woodpecker (D. p. picinus) – western North America.
Distribution and habitat
Now that You have been awakened by the Woodpecker, come see this next vid I made for You last night. The slideshow reveals how the clouds quickly bubble up to huge size in the sun. As the sun sets, the clouds disintegrate into dust and fall out of the Sky.
(Of Course the 'Star' King Buzz makes a guest appearance as he showed up in the tree when he saw me in the road with the camera!!!) This bird was jealous of the woodpecker being introduced in the photostudy first!!
So, On with the Dusty Show! Enjoy!
