Spotlight: Elsah Winter Birds


In Elsah, the elusive Pileated Woodpecker, larger than a crow, is known for its distinct call and red cap, inhabiting areas like Mill Street and Elsah Hills. They require large territories of 100+ acres. The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, another local bird, feeds by drilling holes in trees to drink sap and eat insects. The small, tuxedo-clad Juncos, or "snowbirds," visit in winter and migrate north for summer. The common White-throated Sparrow, with its distinctive song and appearance, is also a winter visitor in Elsah, found near forest edges and parks.
