Pileated Part I

June 14, 2019  •  6 Comments


After hearing Pileated Woodpeckers on the property for several months, this one finally showed itself one day right before a storm. He started off along the fence line checking all the posts, then moved to the woodpile, and finally into the yard.

How cool is that! - I think these are fascinating birds and would love to see one in real life but for now I'll just enjoy your awesome photos of this one.

You sure got some great close ups! Years ago, before I knew what it was, I called it a jungle bird! It makes quite a sound in the woods!
