>Pileated Woodpecker

>Three and a half years ago, on May 30, 2006, Dave and I saw a Pileated Woodpecker on a tree in our backyard. I ran to get my camera, but it flew away just as I held it up to take a picture.

Today we saw one again. And this time I got pictures!

This is only the second time we’ve ever seen this type of woodpecker. My Golden Books Guide to Field Identification; Birds of North America says about the Pileated Woodpecker: “Uncommon; a wary bird of extensive deciduous or mixed forests.”
