While humans tend to complain when a woodpecker decides to pursue dinner in their cedar house siding, other creatures don’t. The holes woodpeckers drill in pursuit of ants—be it in trees, telephone poles, or wherever—are in high demand by other creatures. Smaller woodpeckers, wrens, and other small birds will follow along and clean up whatever insects the Pileated woodpeckers missed. When it comes to their rectangular nesting cavities, the woodpeckers will sometimes allow small bats and chimney swifts to share the hole with them. And after they’ve moved out—as they rarely use the same cavity twice—the old nesting sites become prime real estate for screech owls, bluebirds, wood ducks, raccoons, and other critters.
Giclée prints are printed on archival cotton rag. Inks are water based and free of Nickel, PFOS, PFOA and VOC’s, which are harmful to the environment and cause degradation of prints.
Prints are all matted; an 8×10 print comes in a mat to fit an 11×14 frame, and 11×14 matted prints fit a 16×20 frame.
