That was a cute Christmas tune Harv! Alas the 'two Hairy Woodpeckers'
line has to be changed to one Hairy. Around 3:00 p.m. Doyle called
out a woodpecker had hit the south living room window. On my way there
I looked out the north dining room window and, hopeful, said the Downy
was on the poplar tree and perhaps it was just stunned and survived.
Doyle went out to check, crawling into the juniper bushes, and came
out with a dead female Hairy Woodpecker. We both felt so badly as the
two Hairys plus the Downy have been around here for a long time.
Anyway, a phone call was made to Regina and Harriet is now in the
freezer at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. They seem to think she is
in good shape (for a dead bird). What happens now? Do they determine
if it is to be prepared for a museum?
