Pileated woodpecker. Love the sound!

Pileated Woodpecker!
Ya just got to love the sound!

This woodpecker is on a hydro pole, a very common place to see them.  The power surging through the wires cause the pole to have a very slight vibration. The vibration can mimic the feel of bugs in the wood.

The sound is loud as it echoes through the wood. The video picked up the sound very good.

The head frame at the end of the video is the McIntyre

The only remaining building, following the demolition of the mine site in 2001, was the Shaft No. 11 head frame and a shed containing electrical switchgear for the head frame. The headframe was completed in 1927.

Timmins is celebrating 100 years of history.
