l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Immature first year red headed woodpecker March 24

I have monitored red headed woodpeckers around my house and in my yard since 2001. But I have never heard of them over wintering yet. Until this year. I have heard of an adult a little north of me and them Ann told me of this 1st yr. bird in Whitevale.I have never seen this stage as my birds have always left in early Sept. to migrate and came back looking like an adult already in early May. This young one was very lucky in that people saw it and kept suet and other foods out there for it. It is healthy and getting its adult plumage quickly. Climate change is giving us some very different sightings in the bird world now. Unfortunatley they dont all have a happy ending like this little guys.
