Awesome bird sightings

Today on our way to Canadian Tire we saw the BIGGEST woodpecker. We've seen woodpeckers in our neighbourhood, even on the birdfeeder a couple times but this one was a whole different story. It was about the size of a mallard duck and looked just like Woody Woodpecker. We got quite close to it too. I found it online and it is the Pileated Woodpecker and they used to be endangered.And on the weekend we got to see a hawk really up close as it rested on the tree in our backyard. See them flying overhead quite oftern but never resting in our tree and so up close. It was a really pretty smooth grey one.
