This Pileated Woodpecker popped in this morning. He was on the ground in the backyard, pecking at a rotted tree stump, hoping to find some bugs for breakfast.
He (you can tell it’s a male by the Cherry Koolaid mustache) is yet another red head that I hope becomes a regular visitor! Hmmm…maybe I should strap a dead stump to the deck right next to the Bark Butter branch so I can get a better picture!

A very interesting looking bird Kathy
One of those that looks like it should be related to the dinosaurs!
Beautiful! I would most definitely strap a rotted log on your deck! 🙂
Not sure I can get away with that one…we’ll see!
We have a pair of these that come. They are hard to capture. Very skidding and cautious. Always looking around. Does yours also? They are huge too. And almost prehistoric looking huh? Great capture!
He rarely shows up and does stay hidden. And yes – prehistoric is the perfect description!
A big boy! About 19 to 20 inches! A great bird!
I had such a hard time getting to where I could get a clear shot of him. I so hope he comes back and poses in a place where I can get a good photo!
He is indeed!
How lovely , not seen one before, thank you for posting
