Apologies for the late posting. Pileated Woodpecker is still a difficult bird to find in most of Macomb County. A few years ago there were sporadic reports at Lake St. Clair Metropark, but as far as I know there haven't been any more reports in the past couple of years.
At around 11:15 a.m., a Pileated Woodpecker called briefly behind us (we were banding birds adjacent to the Meadow Loop trail), and then flew in from the southeast, flying right overhead, and landed for a few seconds high in one of the tall trees behind the Nature Center. It then flew off to the northeast.
