These are absolutely great Don. Especially the first one and the last one isn't far behind. You got the exposureon just right for them. I see them occasionally here in Georgia but they sure are hard to get a good shot of. I have posted only one of them back about a year ago.

Cheers

Thanks Keith, Bob and Houston. I shot these in raw, so exposure wasn't a problem. I usually underexpose when shooting to be safe. On being a rare bird. I doubt I'll see one of these again for sometime. I've been going to this location for a couple of years now, and its the first I'd ever seen.....cheers....Don.

great shots, Don. pileated woodies used to be fairly common around here, though they seldom came out of the woods. i remember seeing them frequently when i was a kid growing up near Seattle. haven't seen one for a very long time, though... probably because they like deep woods, and there isn't that much of that left around here anymore...

*sigh*

Beautiful set, Don! I've never seen this type of abird before (well, that does not mean much for I'm far from being a bird expert:-))

Great series! Getting this bird out in the open and in direct light is not easy. I've gotten pictures of this bird but always looking up into the shadows of trees.
