We have a pair of pileated woodpeckers we hear from time to time. They are about the size of a crow and make a distinctive tapping sound when busy in the forest. Unfortunately they have been busy on some of our healthy maple trees.
Of all the trees in the forest they picked the one beside our trailer. So before the tree falls on our trailer I need to move it. Not as easy as it seems as I left the keys to unlock the hitch-pin at Leanne's.
As you can see, the holes are massive and deep. These guys really know how to chop holes in trees.
We are two retired Canadians who have just moved into our off grid passive solar home. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling in our Airstream trailer exploring North America and meeting like minded people.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we settle into this new life off the electrical grid.
