Greg Beck, who lives on the North Shore by the French River, reports he had a pileated, a hairy, a downy and a red-bellied woodpecker on the same day recently.

Greg says he had been seeing the red-bellied woodpecker for a few weeks. I’m intrigued by all of the reports of this bird. Thanks so much to all of you who have shared your reports and pictures.
