Jerry writes that he and his wife live on Beauty Lake near Long Prairie in Todd County.

Also coming in pairs: Pileated woodpeckers in Esko.
Jim and Sue Jensen report that they’ve had a pair of the big woodpeckers coming regularly to their suet feeder for the past seven or eight years. Here are a couple of their pictures:
