In the highlands of the American tropics, from Mexico to Bolivia, this dark hummingbird is often common in forest clearings and edges. It is apparently somewhat nomadic, moving around among mountain ranges, and some wanderers reach our area, with a few found almost every year. Recorded many times in Texas, the species has also appeared in scattered locations from coast to coast and north as far as Canada.
Pileated woodpecker - these are large birds. Dwayne has seen one twice in the last couple of weeks, near the river by our home. The only time I ever saw one I was at my uncles house in southern Ohio about 20 years ago.
