Red-headed Woodpecker Presque Isle Video

If you want to see a Red-headed Woodpecker walk the Ridge Trail at Presque Isle State Park. We spotted this one not far from where Marsh Trail and Ridge Trail Cross. You can park across from the lighthouse and take Sidewalk Trail until you come to Marsh Trail, turn right, cross through the marsh (on the trail of course) and as the trail starts to go uphill, turn left onto Ridge Trail. It’s an easy walk and not very far. Keep your eyes open. We saw lots of different kinds of warblers in the thickets on the sides of the marshes on both sides of Ridge Trail. I’ll talk about them in a future post. Below is the video I took of the pretty Red-headed Woodpecker. You may have to pause the video and let it load. I just posted a smaller, lesser quality video below the HD video (if you click on the 720HD option on the player) for those with slower connections, see bottom video.
