Sadly, yesterday's storm with high winds destroyed the Hairy Woodpecker I
reported yesterday. Now the nest is silent, and I saw the dad perched on a
telephone pole calling.  I have not heard the female responding yet (would
she have been the one in the nest at night?), and I do not know what to do
but am asking around and notified the City forester.  I assume the babies
may have succumbed to hypothermia by now.  I have pictures before and
after.  I guess this is what to expect with greater storm intensity.
