A pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers was found nesting in northern Forest County on June 26.


This Turkey Vulture was photographed by Gary Edwards across from Morrison Park in Seneca, PA, on July 23. After some research, Gary contacted John Humphrey, Wildlife Biologist for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, who confirmed that his team had attached the LVE tag to this bird on February 23, 2015 in Everglades National Park.  He said a few of their tagged birds have been reported this far north, but not many.  They are somewhat surprised at the distances some of the birds are travelling.
