Black-backed Woodpecker (Picoides arcticus) User: Chris  (See all photos - 1682)
Canada (Qu├ębec) After 30 years of birdwatching, my first sighting of a Black-backed Woodpecker. I thought it was a Hairy flying in, but the call was quite different. Seen at the Calvaire d'Oka provincial park.

It was one of those birding moments that will go down unforgotten. So many hours spent in the field over the years, only to have one fly up to tree along a main road, calling away.

My congrats-those are the moments that make the occasional long and fruitless hours seem unimportant. A great day for you.
