WINTERWATCH Nature Miramichi

While snowshoeing at the ski club today I came across signs of a Black-backed Woodpecker. These medium sized woodpeckers do not visit feeders, they are associated with burnt areas or boggy areas. You might hear one scraping away the bark, to get at the larvae of beetles within the tree. Peter saw this woodpecker on the ski trails last year, not far away from this site.
