Subject: Pileated Woodpecker vandalism?
Saturday I attended the Bay-Wise & Beautiful Garden Tour in Sharpsburg,
MD.  At my last stop I spoke to a woman who told me about a Pileated
Woodpecker damaging the side mirrors on her and her son's car.   To be
honest, I doubted the story a bit since I never heard of a woodpecker,
no less a Pileated, fighting his reflection in a car mirror.  She
insisted it was a Pileated.  Well, she was right.  Apparently this
happened in Georgia last year and earlier in MD as well.

The Washington Post story covers one of these events.
