I've had four sightings of an adult Red-headed Woodpecker in the past couple
of weeks where Petersburg Road crosses the Washtenaw/Monroe County Line.
We'd like to think that it's "Billy Ray Bad___" (so-named for his dominance
at the suet feeders), the fledgling that came to stay around our yard as a
black-headed youngster in the fall of 2018 and stayed around until the
following spring. We can't know if that bird stayed in the area.

The November - April transition of Billy Ray is captured in the three
attached pics.

I saw one Sunday evening on Easudes just west of Sharon Hollow. It flew
across the road from a corn bin where appeared to be feeding. I've seen
them in this same spot before, but it's been a while.
