Red-headed Woodpeckers in Ledyard. Rose Hill WMA. Take Thomas road off Mattewson Mill Rd to where pavement turns to dirt road. Park here and take blue trail on right. In about a tenth of a mile the blue trail turns left at gap in stonewall and an unmarked but obvious trail turns right. Follow this unmarked trail till you see a wooded swamp on right. Still stay on trail for another 50 to 75 yards then bushwhack towards swamp. There are Heron nests here and 3 maybe 4 Red-headed Woodpeckers are using the area. Originally reported by Bob Askins.
