A Surprise Visitor

My daughter called me outside to catch this visitor. I barely got this shot when he flew off. It's the second time I've seen a pileated woodpecker near my house. I hope this one comes back again soon.

  1. Isn't it great to see nature intersect our own habitats! However, we need to continue to be vigilant in watching out for them too!

  2. And I hope he doesn't start drumming on your house! (We are wary of the ones who visit us - they are sometimes attracted by our wood siding.)

  3. You got him just in time - good capture! I never thought I'd end up looking for shots of birds and learning so much that I never knew. The woodpeckers fascinate me and they always head to the suet at my feeders.
