Also, from Waite St. Bridge, Hooded & Common Mergansers, 2 Red-tailed Hawks, and a Song Sparrow, plus some others. (Flo -- SS on RWA land, in case you need FOY.)
First Pileated I've seen here, in 20 years or so of birding. I've heard there are other Pileated-like holes in the area; perhaps more regular than we realize?
From Arthur Shippee:
1/16/14 - Hamden, behind 97 North Lake Dr -- Female Pileated Woodpecker
Link to public-view FB photo album below -- I'd appreciate confirmation from non-FB that it works. Digiscoping: iPhone mounted to hand-held binos.
