    Oh, man! Where can I get a pileated woodpecker suit like that?

      I have workshop coming up where you can learn how to make one. My designs rely on a snug fit to ease take off and landings, you may want to look into one of my weight loss programs also.

      Updates pending.

        I am Ok for weight loss. But anything to make competitive woodpecker sounds, both cawing and hammering? Maybe, just maybe I don’t have to wait for my next life!
