Arrived this morning ! (Mecklenburg area). Yesterday we heard an extremely loud tapping sound that was like a sapsucker but 10Xas loud. When we found the bird it indeed was a very enterprising YBSA that found our abandoned parabolic DISH antenna. The exact middle was his microphone. He found a mate within minutes! Guess we have a new alarm clock. Can be heard a half mile away with ease.
ANyone planning to bird Fitzgerald Rd area - DON'T. The local Bergen farm has slathered fields in liquid manure slurry and it really is putrid outside.
