Woodpecker HighRise

Woodpecker HighRise

These photo's were taken on one of Salisbury Ridge Runners snowmobile trail system (The Switchback Trail), which is a 10 mile trail that runs across our property. My wife and I walk our dogs on this trail when weather permits. What is unique in these photo's is the apprx 48" channel the woodpeckers have carved into the tree. I ride this trail quite often and never noticed the tree until we started walking the dogs on the trail. I then decided to bring along a camera so that others may see what a small bird can accomplish when searching for food.

That is correct, the trail begins at Fuller Rd (Curtis) and the runs apprx 10 miles until you come to Jerseyfield Rd.

Is that the one that follows the old railroad bed from Curtis? I understand that one of the trails labeled C4F has switchbacks along Trammel Creek and I have reached it using the Murphy Brook Road passing Leipzig. Salisbury is full of hidden places.
