Nature Walk II

Pilelated Woodpecker
As I walked through a forested path, this beautiful woodpecker landed in front of me just overhead. I think it saw my camera and said, "Hey, shoot me!"
This particular woodpecker is quite large - about as big as a crow!

great capture! pileated woodpeckers can be very elusive - although very noisy!

I love the "hairpiece". Reminds me of Zippy The Pinhead.
