A success story

woodpeckerOn his morning drive to Lake Wallenpaupack, Fred Gast, PPL’s community affairs specialist, saw an injured pileated woodpecker lying in the road. After pulling over to evaluate its condition, he thought that it might have been hit by a car and was stunned. Since the bird was still not moving after a few minutes, Fred decided to put it in a box and bring it to the center until he could come up with a solution. He didn’t want the bird to be hit by another car. By the time he arrived at the lake, the bird was sitting up and alert in the box. He released it near the center and the woodpecker immediately flew to a nearby tree.
