What beats a full house? How about 4, count 'em 4 Pileated woodpeckers in the same tree!!! From afar it looked like mom, dad and 2 FY as they had a nice family âpeckâ-nic going in a tall pine near the parking area before the stone bridgeâ¦quite a sight. Only to be followed by a Barred Owl along the river path. Scarlet Tanager singing in the background, Great Blue Heron, Eastern Kingbird and a Carolina Wren rounded out the walk.
