Default Pileated Woodpecker





Had a better composed one without the tree obstruction...but with all the maneuvering around, forgot I had the lens on manual focus due to those limbs. Hate it when that happens!

A hard bird to catch - you never would have gotten anything with AF because of all those intervening limbs and leaves!

Agree with Penolta 100% about a very difficult bird to capture, you did good.

thank you for sharing these! I'll echo that it is a very hard bird to capture, I've seen it from a distance and know it's resident in my woods along with the downy, hairy and red-bellied but it is an elusive creature.

You did well. I'm having trouble understanding the orientation on the second shot though, is the branch horizontal and not vertical, if it were me I might try flipping it and cropping a little.

The branch was level. I was on the ground about 40-45 degree angle.
