So many things to be thankful for as 2022 comes to a close. I finished my first year at Sugar Creek. I treasure the relationships that have formed with every group and person. Thankful for my health and that of my family.
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and New Year!

In the Wild Woodpeckers
It is a rare privilege to host pileated woodpeckers. They are not commonly seen birds. About the size of a crow, they're spread sparsely throughout mature woods and very secretive about their nest sites. Pileated woodpeckers have been spotted multiple times at Sugar Creek. Most recognize the pileated as "Woody Woodpecker."
Red headed, red bellied, downy and hairy woodpeckers have also been spotted at camp. It is quite exciting to see any of these distinct birds clinging right side up or down in the trees pecking for food or flitting throughout the valley on their way to and fro.
