3-toed and Black-backed Woodpecker @ Frenchtown, MT

Another cool and wet day in western Montana...not complaining as we really need the moisture. It worked out well for outside discovery as I did not get a soaking rain on me while looking for cool plant and animal life. Decided to visit Blue Mountain briefly for wildflowers...then transit over to Frenchtown to check out the "burn area" from the wildfire of 2.5 years ago. Had success in both ventures, photographed several "new" plants and found the two fire-dependent, code 2, woodpecker species. Video clip follows.
