Spring is in the Air – Jim Saunders

      I was going to the Feed Mill to get some nyjer seed yesterday morning (Feb. 27) and I took the entrance off of Wellington St.   At the first 90 degree turn I stopped and listened for some bird activity on the east side of the road.    There was some tapping on a dead tamarack that was being made by 2 Pileated Woodpeckers. In order to get a picture I had to get to the other side of the tree because of the sun.  I was afraid they might get spooked but they stayed for a few minutes after I got the sun at my back.
     Mama’s in the lead saying “Let’s go” but Dad didn’t want to leave because he was stuffing his face with something from the fresh excavation.  It may have been Carpenter Ants but I’ve always thought that Carpenter Ants were afraid of heights because I’ve never seen them more than 5 feet from the ground.  After the excitement I forgot to go to the Feed Mill so I went today  and stopped to see if they were around.  They weren’t there today.  Jim
