For the last couple of years, I have had a pair of Pileateds that I can hear out in the woods away from my house. I occasionally get a glimpse of them, and have photographed them once....but never anything close to as good as these photographs.

Ed, I'm very jealous of the shots you get!
those are some of the best I've seen of the Pileated Woodpecker.

Ironically, the Pileateds that have been in my woods picked this afternoon to make their first appearance of the year....at least of of them did. These are at an EXTREME distance with the Bigma fully extended, handheld...100% crops...nothing close to the quality of Ed's shots, still I'm happy to have got a shot of any sort for only the second time.
