Woody stopped by today

She is a Pileated Woodpecker  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pileated_Woodpecker

She’s awesome to see, and a bit of a hard subject to photograph, although I did manage a few decent shots –

I have seen a couple in the neighborhood, but mostly in the wooded areas. She sat there and chipped away, and had a little feast. She was even content enough to let the humans get in their cars and drive away, with just one eye on them. Hope she and her mate make a habit of it, maybe even finding the suet in the back of the house…

Clearly the phone pole is infested and my tax dollars will be required to replace it before it falls on the house.

    She is a beaut. Good shots. I guess that she likes bugs to eat. Hope that suet is also on the menu. Mom
