The Three Amigos
I was very excited to spot these three woodpeckers in the lane just behind my house early morning last weekend as I headed out for a walk. I managed to get this not-so-great photo of them before they started going their separate ways. My book, Birds of Alberta, tells me they are Pileated Woodpeckers.

The book says they have a "maniacal call". Geez, I thought that sound was the teenage boys across the lane.
