My Hubster is the greatest!!!

He has a lot of patience.... and he waited and he waited and got pictures of the female pileated woodpecker. We have a pair... both of them were on the feeder but flew off before he could get the picture of both of them... they are very skittish and the slightest sound or quick movement sends them off into the trees.......The females have a smaller crown and don't have the red stripe on their faces..

They seem to show up on cloudy days....never when there's nice sunshine to get a really good picture... lol We also got a picture of one of the small downy woodpeckers too....

Soooooooo I proudly present my gorgeous female pileated woodpecker!!
