A pileated woodpecker has been foraging in a dead tree in the couple of acres of woods behind my house, and making quite a racket. No signs of excavating nearby, so I assume the nest is some distance away.
Does anyone know how far a pileated might fly for food? My house is between Thorncrag sanctuary (a mile away) and the Androscoggin River (half a mile away). But otherwise this part of Lewiston is pretty well filled with houses. Anne Williams
