Observation Location: 302-296 Mansfield St., Sharon

Scientific Name: Dryocopus pileatus
Comments: Unfortunately I did not get a picture. However, this was very recognizable for the loud call, the large white spot under its wings when it flew from tree to tree and its pointy crest. I only briefly made out the coloring of its crest but unmistakable nonetheless. Much larger than the other woodpeckers in the area, flickers, red bellies, downy, hairy etc.
