Hello, Woodpecker!

We have a pair of pileated woodpeckers that visits our yard frequently. Usually if I see one and watch for a while, I'll spot the other one. If they don't see me, that is. They are quite shy.

This one's on the ground. More often they're perched on a tree or hanging on a suet feeder, or even drilling holes in the deck railing.

I think my best pileated woodpecker photo was one I took last March. They move pretty much constantly. I've probably taken and deleted dozens of blurry pictures of these handsome birds.
