Ivory-billed woodpecker in tree near my house this morning!



I saw a large woodpecker this morning in the huge oak tree next to my house this morning that I believe to be an ivory billed one. It had a large plumage of red on it's forehead and was larger than a pheasant in height. It's wing span measuared atleast 30 ". It was white and black and was up quite high on the tree butI stil could make it out quite well. It has a big nest in the tree so may have young. Also saw some other birds which didn't look like hawks but may b\have been in the other tree. Also saw blue bird at my neighbor's hummngbird feeder. I live in Cairo, NY on Grove St off of Railroad ave. I ahd seen the bird briefly befoe down the road flying over head and at first thought it was a blue loon but it wasn't. My friend called it a red throated woodpecker but I think she was wrong. I do get a downy one regularly at my feeder so you see I do know my birds and I woud say this is not a piliated one either! I welcome your feed back.. I do hiope you look into viewing here or him as truly was an incredible site and gift in the morning! The Tree Top porto potty place is dumping More
