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.
