I recently watched a 2012 movie on Prime called “Birders: the Central Park Effect”. It featured Chris Cooper, the central park birder in the viral video who was accosted by the woman with her off-leash dog. He’s not just a casual birder, but a highly respected Central Park icon in the field. Never realized how many amazing birds there are in Central Park.
Herongrrrl, could your mystery woodpecker be a sapsucker?
