Piliated Woodpecker

Piliated Woodpecker

The Piliated Woodpecker is elusive, mostly traveling high in the tree tops resulting in partially obscured and too distant photographs. This one entertained me close up for about ten minutes.

I was afraid I would scare him off if I moved to get better shots so I took what I could from where I first spotted him.

After he flew off into the tree tops I waited, listening to him work on the trees. I was hoping he would repeat his path as birds sometimes do, but it wasn’t to be.
