Who hasn’t spotted a Pileated Woodpecker,
Only to double check (if only for a second and secretly at that) to make sure it wasn’t the long-lost Ivory Billed … no matter how slim the chance?
|Can you see the blaze of white on its back?|
Me neither — it must be a Pileated.
I very much doubt they still exist,
But sometimes I think their ghosts still do.
