red-headed woodpecker

can't think of a more fitting way to start this blog than with a picture and video of my first red-headed woodpecker. while chasing after a cooper's hawk at Great Falls National Park, our group ventured onto a path we don't normally take. and there the red-headed was (spotted first by intrepid birder and avid studier of wind patterns, Donald). the red-headed proceeded to devour a cicada, providing us with a long, unobstructed view for well over 5 minutes. (apologies for the mediocre photo, but we were still quite a distance away.)
