Default Pileated Polewalker

I've never seen 2 together. These were a couple of young guys that were playing on the telephone poles. They let me watch just fine when I didn't have my camera. As soon as I grabbed it they took off. So found a good spot and hunkered down, about 15 minutes later they came back but wouldn't both get in the light. Only got about 4 shots before they took off for good and this is the only one worth keeping. They are smaller than the one I usually get around here still pretty big though, so the dark eye is the way to tell for sure if they are juveniles, the eye's turn yellow as they mature. The males also have the red mustache while the female's have a black mustache (insert grandma/cafeteria lady joke here)
