An Unexpected Addition to the Cottage List

Dec 27, 2014

We were up at Grand lac des Cèdres on a day trip, and were not expecting to see any rare birds.  But hey, while walking over to visit friends, Barbara heard the tapping of a woodpecker.  It was low down on the trunk, and it only took a second to see that it was a Black-backed Woodpecker.  A rare sighting indeed, part of an apparent irruption this winter.
