    unique nest Winter is a great time to spot and study bird nests and the used nest of the Red eyed Vireo may be the most recognizable of all The tightly woven nest measures about 5 cm wide by 5 cm deep and is typically suspended in a horizontal Y fork of a young tree sometimes as low as three feet above the ground The nest usually has several strips of white birch bark or similar pale material sewn into the exterior of the cup You ll often find the nest immediately beside a trail or along the edge of a forest A similarly constructed nest found in a conifer may belong to the Red eyed Vireo s cousin the Blue headed Vireo Don t linger waiting for the nest makers to return though Red eyed Vireos are long gone spending the winter months in South America The loud and flashy woodpecker With its conspicuous red crest the crow sized Pileated Woodpecker is easily the most spectacular and unmistakable of Ontario s woodpecker species Mated pairs defend year round territories in mature hardwood and mixed forest While their territories are large they often betray their presence at great distance by their lively and far carrying advertising call yak yak yak yak yak yak yak They call with greater frequency as spring approaches and may be more audible later in the day Even if you don t hear one Pileated Woodpeckers betray their presence by the tell tale rectangular feeding cavities that they bore into dead or living trees infested with carpenter ants Some of these cavities can be a couple metres long Fresh chips on the snow below will tell you that the work is recent A bird may return to a tree several times so even if you don t see one on a recently bored tree upon your visit it may be possible to see it later at the same spot The Pileated Woodpecker is fairly confiding and may allow you to watch it at a distance of a few metres If you see one at work and have any doubts about your ability to approach quietly and gently enjoy the view of flying wood chips from where you stand The Brown capped Chickadee Almost everyone is familiar with the Black capped Chickadee the confiding little bird that often approaches us for free handouts uttering the clear and familiar chick a dee dee dee call But have you ever heard or seen the brown capped version It s the Boreal Chickadee the Black capped Chickadee s more reclusive cousin Sticking fairly closely to spruce dominated habitats it s not one you re likely to see in more southern parks but it is a possible sighting in and north of Algonquin Provincial Park The Boreal Chickadee utters a distinctive nasal tseek a day day call that may be the first way you detect its presence If you re in a spruce dominated forest and come across a flock of
