I took this picture about a year ago of a pileated woodpecker a few blocks from home. It was constantly on the move and was hard to get a decent shot. I believe I used 10x optical zoom with the d 6490 Andy

Great shot Andy ! I know what you mean about hard to capture. I saw one early this spring in a rainy mist - got some very crappy shots of it and I haven't seen it since !

Great shot, Andy-

He is a hard one to catch. Like Dawn, I have tried several times. Excellent capture.

Pretty sharp shot given the situation! I haven't seen one of these since they tore down the woods behind my g-ma's house to build a subdivision.

Your right Dawn--its not easy to capture this type of bird--in fact most all of the woodpeckers move around fast. Andy

Inneyeseakay--sorry to here about the land being cleared. Its always hard to see nice wilderness cleared away for developement. I risk being called a tree hugger when I make that statement but so be it. Andy
