Bus Stop Listening - Woodpecker getting breakfast (4/18/2008)
I walked Nichole to the bus stop this morning. As we were going down the driveway, she stopped and looked around, scanning the tree tops. She said "I hear a woodpecker". I too heard it. It was near the top of a 70 foot tall tree, who's trunk was about 70 yards away (about 75 yards from the bird to her ear). While she could not locate where the woodpecker was "ratatat-tatting", she could clearly hear it (along with other birds chirping). Maybe after her July surgery to go bilateral, she will even be able to locate the sound source too!
