Subject:Three-toed and Black-backed Woodpeckers - Crow Wing

This afternoon the sound of tapping led me to a male Three-toed Woodpecker 
in northeastern Crow Wing County.  The bird was initially in the southeast 
corner of the intersection of CR1 and Low's Lake Rd (about 2.3 miles from 
the Aitkin County line).  It later flew across CR1 to the north side and was 
last seen about 80 feet into the trees there.  It appeared the bird had 
spent a lot of time on the south side of the road where there were a number 
of trees worked over.  I was able to contact several people in the area - 
Barb and Denny Martin, Milt Blomberg and Frank Gosiak, and Butch Ukura and 
Warren Nelson - who were able to get there and see the bird.

After almost everyone had left, I decided to do a more thorough check of the 
area and found a male Black-backed Woodpecker in the same general area. 
There is a power line going south from CR1 a few hundred yards west of the 
above intersection, and this bird was on the north side of CR1 directly 
across from that powerline.  Barb and Denny were fortunately still around to 
see this bird.

Also seen in the vicinity were 2 Gray Jays, a couple of Pine Grosbeaks, and 
a flock of about 20 White-winged Crossbills.
