Sarah Brown 05/22/07 10:54 am Is that w Woodpecker I hear nearby?
Pam 05/22/07 12:40 pm Sorry Sarah, I have not heard one when I have looked in. Did hear a Mourning Dove however - heard it the other day too.
Mare 05/22/07 01:22 pm Sarah, I heard a northern flicker early this morning, there is no mistaking that call, I think they are woodpeckers.
Madeline 05/22/07 01:28 pm Sometimes I mistake northern flickerds for mourning doves. They are ground feeders sticking the beaks into the ground for bugs.
Pam 05/22/07 03:18 pm Listen to Mourning Dove here:

and Northern Flicker here:
http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/181/_/Northern_Flicker.aspx
the Mourning Dove sounds like our (English) Wood Pigeon
Madeline 05/22/07 04:34 pm Oh Pam, I didn't mean that they sounded alike, I ment they look similar at a distance on the ground. I should of mentioned that in my post.
Pam 05/22/07 05:00 pm I know what you meant Madeline but I just thought maybe someone might like to know what both sounded like because I didn't know until I looked it up as above. I don't know many American bird sounds and this was very noticeable last year when I was watching the Loon cam with sound because there are a lot of wader, warbler, bunting type sounds as well as the Loons and I just don't know what they are. There are so many of those little birds too and it is very difficult to find out what they are - unless someone else is watching at the same time that I can ask. However, I'm learning - I can now tell a RWB from a Bobwhite :))
Sarah Brown 05/22/07 07:51 pm hmm...the noise sounded like a woodpecker drumming.....My daughter however rather sceptically said it was probably something creaking so was wondering if there were woodpeckers in the vicinity
