Woodpeckers have landed in the library!

Happy March! If you're looking for a little bit of luck this month, you don't need to find a leprechaun, you just need to visit the library through April 4 to see Audubon's Pileated Woodpecker (plate 111) on display! Woodpeckers are seen as a sign of good luck in many cultures and are associated with wishes coming true.

Audubon has depicted the adult male, adult female, and young male woodpecker. They are pictured among the branches of the racoon grape. Read more from Audubon's account here.
