Nice grab shots of an interesting looking bird. I haven't seen any of those around here, so this is a treat to see. Hope you get the opportunity for some more shots of him.

Thanks guys. I'm hoping to get more shots of this amazing bird. When they start on a tree it's like they're using an axe, chips fly everywhere. Interesting flight characteristics as well. They're about the size of a crow.

Not surprised you know the bird Jelow, they like it up here.

OK Sean, ya got me there.
You haven't seen a Pileated woodpecker at your humming bird feeder????? No Shit!

I don't think that they're a southeastern bird Steven but what do I know.

.....about the size of a crow!

Holy Moly, I had no idea it is so big. I would really like seeing one and to watch it work on a tree. I've no idea, haven't looked for data if that bird is around north central Texas.

The Plileated Woodpecker is the largest in NA (not including the presumably extinct Ivory Billed ). Range all throughout the Eastern US from the Great Lakes east (including FLA) as well as Canada and parts of the West Coast and Idaho but the map I have shows it being present only in the most Eastern parts of Texas. They have a great call to go with the looks as well, very much unmistakable.
