I've never seen this species of woodpecker before, so was another treat in a week of firsts. They're quite large-about the size of big crow or raven.....cheers........Don.

Wow, these shots are amazing! I have a pair of pileateds way down here in Georgia, but they are very elusive. Nice to see your good views of this one.

Thanks for the comments. I like the first and last best too. It was a little hard to get a great shot, as it was a dull day, and he was pecking at the log so much, he barely took a break. Beautiful bird - I'd like to get some shots of it in better light...cheers.....Don.

When they are on a tree or a log they are very busy and difficult to get a good shot of. These are some mighty fine shots.
