The Wooler Lewis's Woodpecker was seen again this morning, Sat. Feb. 9th,
between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. by Drew and Julia Monkman. The bird spent almost
all of its time high in the large maple tree in front of the house at the
end of Leavitt
Road. It only flew done to the yellow suet feeder once. On two occasions, it
flew
back towards the junction of Teal Rd. and Leavitt Rd. where there are a
number
of large trees.

Directions to the Lewis's Woodpecker feeder, courtesy Don Shanahan:
Please respect the owners request of not going past the 911(#76) sign in
the middle of the picnic table.  Take Hwy 401 exit 522 and travel NW on
county rd 40. At Wooler it becomes cty rd 5. Exiting Wooler you will see
St. Alphonsus Catholic Church on your right. App.0.9km past the church
turn right on Teal Rd. Almost immediately turn left on Leavitt Rd.  The
road is narrow but there is a place to park on the left before you get
to #76.
